Fin­ish­ing Ma­te­ri­als & In­struc­tions

Co­or­di­nat­ing cot­ton fab­ric Polyester fiber­fill Five small rusted jin­gle bells Twine Small-di­am­e­ter pli­able branch 20- or 22-gauge wire 3/4"- wide co­or­di­nat­ing rib­bon Nee­dle-nose pli­ers Press stitched piece from re­verse side, straight­en­ing as much as pos­si­ble. Gen­tly pull eighth thread from stitch­ing on all sides and trim to 1/4" from pulled thread.

Cut a piece of fab­ric 3/4" larger than trimmed stitched piece for front. Fold stitched piece un­der at pulled thread and cen­ter on front fab­ric piece. Sew stitched piece to front fab­ric, leav­ing ex­tra front fab­ric ex­posed around edges.

Cut a piece of fab­ric the same size as front of or­na­ment for back. Place front and back fab­ric pieces right sides to­gether. Sew to­gether us­ing 1/4" seam al­lowance, leav­ing a small open­ing. Turn or­na­ment right side out and stuff with fiber­fill. Sew open­ing closed.

Cut a piece of twine to same length as perime­ter of stitched piece. Whip­stitch twine to linen edges us­ing one strand of 7063 floss. Sew jin­gle bells to bot­tom of or­na­ment, spac­ing evenly.

Form a small loop on one end of wire, then twist wire around branch; form an­other loop at other end. At­tach branch to or­na­ment by sewing wire loops to each top cor­ner. Make a bow us­ing co­or­di­nat­ing rib­bon and at­tach to hanger.
