How to Make a Fabric Country Prim Christmas Tree Ornament. Gather some green homespun fabrics, a cinnamon stick, and a rusty bell.

Optional: spray adhesive, and sparkles or Mica Flakes

How to sew a fabric tree ornament. Draw yourself a tree ornament pattern.  Mine is 5 1/2" tall by 4 1/2" wide at the bottom. If you draw it on paper first you can keep this pattern and use it over and over again!

Pin and cut out two of green trees from homespun fabric.

Pin pretty sides together as shown in the photo. Leave an opening at the bottom for turning.

Trim seams and clip curves on the tree ornament.

Stitch around the edge using the pressure foot as your guide.  MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE AN OPENING at the bottom so you can turn your tree ornament pretty side out.

Clip your corners.


Hand sew the rusty bell onto the Christmas tree ornament. Turn your ornament pretty side out.  Stitch a bell on the top. Stuff the tree with fiberfill.

Put a little bit of hot glue or Elmer's glue on the end of the cinnamon stick.  Put the cinnamon stick through the whole at the bottom of the tree.  Hand stitch around to help hold it in place.

Glue Mica-flakes onto the Christmas tree ornament. Either hand sew thread or string to the back of your ornament, or use a Christmas hook.

(Optional) I feel the sparkles make the craft.  Using an all-purpose spay, spray your ornament.  Sprinkle some Mica flakes.
