Quiltable.com celebrates CHRISTMAS IN JULY
Quiltable.com celebrates Christmas in July with two new projects. Today features the 9-Piece Ornament project which is GREAT for using fabric scraps.
Make ornaments for everyone! These designs release as Christmas-themed ornaments and color combinations and uses are limitless. We tested a traditional Christmas look with red and green on recycled khaki-colored linen, stitched in green thread.
We also tested a more art deco style ornament with black and whites, featuring a silver metallic thread.
Of course, many designs and styles were tested.
Gift Card Pockets
Once these designs are quilted, rough-cut out the shape at least 1/2″ beyond the stitching line. Add a hemmed piece of fabric half-way up the ornament’s back side.
From the front, stitch along the ornament’s perimeter to secure the gift card pocket. Keep in mind, this can totally be a CANDY pocket, too.
Adding ribbon, flowers, buttons, and more brings amazing personalization to this project.
Fabric and textile items stay in place with zig-zag or tack-stitches. Other elements are glued in place with craft adhesive, like Aleene’s Fabric Tacky Glue, of course, these additional items could be sewn on by hand using decorative threads, too.
Scale & Personalization
The Festive Ornaments set has 6 printed designs, and includes an additional 3 blanks designs for personalization. Add a monogram, favorite edge to edge, year, and more. And like all digital quilting designs, scale these ornaments in size for even more variety! At the default size, these designs fit onto a 5″ x 5″ charm square size piece of fabric.
Quiltable.com donates 150 ornaments to an Angel Tree charity project each year. Watch social media for more pictures of these fun ornament designs!
