Felt Angel Christmas Ornament Tutorial
Are you a mom of school-age children looking for a simple Christmas Ornament to make? Join Princess as she shares a tutorial of how to take felt cut-out on an Ellison machine and creates a felt Angel Christmas Ornament.
I love crafting and get a little sad sometimes when I do not get to craft as often as I like. Being a wife, blogger, and mommy of four does not leave a ton of time for personal pursuits. I look forward to Christmas because it gives me that extra excuse to create something great with my children. Princess was taught basic sewing stitches a few years ago and she is now my crafting buddy.
I had cut shapes from felt last year which we had not gotten around to making into anything. Princess had the choice to use Christmas tree, camel, star, or angel for her Christmas ornament tutorial. She chose an angel. We used glitter white felt and plain white felt.

Step 1) Choose a pattern (Angel, Tree, Ornament,etc)
Step 2) Cut out 2 pieces on Ellison, Cricut Expressions, or Silhuoette Cameo. (We just so happen to live less than 5 mintues from a college that allows us to use their Ellison Machine.) Otherwise trace a cookie cutter and cut out TWO identical shapes.
Step 3) Stitch face or decorations first. (We used 3 strands or embroidery floss for the Angel’s eyes and mouth.)
Step 4) Begin to stitch around the edges with a matching color of floss. Once you are more than halfway begin to stuff slightly with fiber-fill or poly-fill.
Step 5) Continue to stitch the entire ornament closed. Add hanger string. Place on Christmas tree or wrap as a gift.
