Create these warm and cozy Christmas fabric ornaments using a Charm Pack! Eight different winter-themed ornaments to hand sew this holiday season.
Today I’m super excited to share these cozy Christmas fabric ornaments I made using fabric from a Charm Pack! I was recently fabric shopping and found a charm pack with the most beautiful flannel fabrics, Yuletide Gatherings Flannels Charm Pack by Primitive Gatherings for Moda Fabrics. I thought the fabric would make the sweetest ornaments for a cozy winter-themed tree. I designed eight winter-themed ornaments that can all be made with a charm pack. The new pattern is now available in my new pattern shop, Designing Cheerfully!
The eight ornaments I designed are all things you would find on a chilly winter day: snow boots, winter hats, mittens, cozy sweaters, evergreen trees, ice skates, snowpal and a cup of hot cocoa. The ornaments are sized to fit 5″ squares of fabric so they can be cut from a charm pack.
While you can make these ornaments from any fabric, charms packs are nice because the prints will coordinate and often have the same print repeating in different colors. This was true with the flannels charm pack I used. I was able to make the same ornament in different colorways – red, green, gray.
The ornaments are made by layering fabric on top of stiffened felt. The stiffened felt provides just the right amount of structure for the ornaments. They are then embellished with simple embroidery, buttons and Pom Poms.
The ornaments are a perfect hand-sewing project to do while curled up watching your favorite Christmas movie. The hand stitching is a simple running, stitch making this a great project for beginners or for seasoned pros looking for a relaxing stitching project. You can use coordinating or contrasting embroidery floss to create different looks for your ornaments. I experimented with both on this set of ornaments.
The flannels charm pack by Primitive Greetings had the perfect fabric for this project. The charm pack includes different flannels in cream, light and dark gray, red and green colors.
The pattern is now available in my Etsy shop, Designing Cheerfully. The pattern includes templates and assembly instructions for all eight ornaments. Below are pictures of each ornament!
Winter Boot Ornament
This ornament is ready to take on the snow! I designed it to look like a classic duck boot lined in cozy flannel. Three small Xs are added with embroidery floss to represent the laces.
These sweater ornaments look cozy and warm! I made three sweater ornaments using the same print but in different colors. You could embroider a snowflake on the front of each or add a button as I did.
These mittens look warm and comfy! Choose two fabrics that compliment each other to make the mitten and the mitten ribbing. I embellished mine with snowflake buttons and coordinating thread. Make two of each color so you have a pair of mittens.
My pattern includes templates for two different snowpal ornaments. One wears a top hat and the other a snow hat. They are embellished with a small felt carrot nose and buttons. A snowflake button adorns each hat. The flannels charm pack really came with the perfect fabric for this ornament. These snowpals look warm and cozy – make one for everyone in your family!
Winter Hat Ornaments
These winter hat ornaments are my favorite! I again made three ornaments using the same print in different colors. The houndstooth fabric was perfect for a warm winter hat. Snowflakes buttons adorn the brim of each hat and a handmade yarn Pom Pom is at the top! The pattern includes instructions for making your own Pom Poms by hand.
Ice Skate Ornaments
The charm pack came with such beautiful cream fabrics I decided to make an ice skate ornament. I added a snowflake button and small diagonal stitch lines with french knots to mimic laces.
Winter Tree Ornaments
A winter scene wouldn’t be complete without a few evergreen trees. These trees are made by mixing and matching green fabrics with different prints. Add a snowflake or star button to the top to finish them off.
Hot Cocoa Mug Ornaments
After a fun day outside in the snow, a cup of hot cocoa is a must! These sweet hot cocoa mugs are made with two fabrics in the same print but different colors. A large red heart is appliquéd to the top. You could also decorate your cocoa mugs with buttons!
These ornaments were so fun to create. Pick up the pattern in my new Etsy Shop, Designing Cheerfully, and use it with a special Charm Pack. These will look beautiful on your holiday tree or make sweet gifts for family and friends. Skip adding hanging loops and attach them to a long piece of yarn with clothespins to make a cozy winter banner!
