Carefully press and straighten stitched pieces. Cut out front and back near buttonhole stitches, being careful not to cut into stitches. Pin wrong sides together, matching edges. Starting near the top, stitch around through edges of buttonhole stitches. When back near the top, leave a 11/2" opening and stuff ornament with a small amount of fiberfill, taking care not to overstuff. Place ends of cording in center top for hanging loop and continue stitching in edges of buttonhole stitches to secure opening and hanger. Sew bell to center bottom to complete.
