{Handmade Christmas Ornament No. 6}

Hi, I’m Erin from In Between Laundry.

I’m excited to share one of my projects today, but most of all, I’m thrilled to meet you– the fabulous readers of “Under the Table and Dreaming!” I love how the blogging world opens up so many opportunities to get know other similar women. Thank you, Stephanie Lynn!

Receiving a handmade gift and knowing that someone took the time to personally create a one-of-a-kind item just for me is the best feeling. Keeping that in mind led me to think of how I could create a personal, special ornament for my husband and boys (and me) this year.

You will need:
white cotton fabric (each ornament will need about a 5″ circle),
a 4″ embroidery hoop,
embroidery threads in your choice of colors
and a needle with a large eye

Begin by sketching out fun faces to represent your loved ones.

For our family, I made sure to include big, smiley faces and hair that matched each of us.

Hee hee! See what I mean?

Next, place your fabric in the embroidery hoop and secure it tightly.

Using a pencil, lightly sketch out your design. I placed each face in the middle and
added the year at the top, each person’s name at the bottom and a border around the

Begin embroidering over the pencil marks. Make sure your stitches are even for a
polished look.

After you are finished stitching, trim off the excess fabric.

That’s it! How fun are these? They look precious hanging from the mantel, to label
stockings, as gift tags, or even on the good, old Christmas tree!

Merry Christmas!
