project // embroidered double hexagon ornament
When I designed the small size of the Emmanuel embroidery pattern, I did so wanting to make it into a hexagon. I didn't know what I'd make with that hexagon, but an ornament seemed right. And what's great is that you can make this ornament with any embroidered hexagons.
My ornament is made with 1.5-inch hexies. The basted hexagons and felt piece in the center are the same size, so if you want to change the size of your ornament, just make sure all the pieces are the same size.
Ready? Let's make an ornament!
Here's what you need:
Two basted hexagons
One felt hexagon
Thread or string for a hanger
WonderClips or pins
Scissors and needle
Remove the papers from the hexagons, then place the felt hexagon between the hexagons. Turn the felt hexagon so that the points are centered on the straight sides of the basted hexagons.
Clip or pin the three layers together and stitch around the edge of the fabric hexagons.
Cut a 6-inch piece of thread or string and stitch it through the top point of the ornament. Tie the ends together.
I love when a project can be made many different ways, and this is definitely something you can customize. Change the size, use any small embroidery pattern, or skip the embroidery and fussy cut your favorite fabrics. It also seems like the kind of ornament that I should make every year with a new design.
What will you stitch on your ornament?
