Handmade Christmas Tree Ornaments
 

Handmade Christmas tree ornament - How to sew a mini patchwork quilt tree ornament.

This 25 patch mini quilt tree ornament looks like it was difficult to make and that you put a lot of effort into it. But in reality, it is just sewn strips of fabric together to create this festive quilted ornament!

How to Make A Mini 25 Patch Quilt Tree Ornament

 
You will Need:
 
small scraps of Christmas fabric
small pieces of quilt batting
ribbon for a handle (or use a metal ornament hook)
basic sewing needs
 
 
Pin It
 
Cut 1 1/2" strips from ten different Christmas fabric scraps.
Pin strips pretty sides together and stitch down the seam using the pressure foot as your guide.
Continue sewing strips of fabric together until you have five strips sewn together.

Repeat this with the other set of five different Christmas prints.

Press seams towards one side. (Any side is fine.)
Now cut the sewn strips into 1 1/2" strips. Now you will have little tiny squares of five sewn together.
Arrange the rows of five squares in the order you want the quilt ornament to look.
Begin sewing the rows of squares together matching and pinning at the seams.
Easy to sew mini quilted tree ornament. Once you have your 25 squares sewn together we are going to make a border around the quilt. Add a strip of fabric to the left and the right of your quilt.
To do so place the strip pretty sides together to one side of the quilt and stitch using the pressure foot as your guide.

Do the same to the other side of the quilt.

Then open and press the quilt top.

Now attach the top and bottom strip in the same manner.

(You do not need to do this step if you are using a metal hook for hanging, or if you want to make it into a mini quilt, and not a tree ornament.)

Fold the ribbon for a handle in half. Pin the raw edges of the ribbon in the corner as shown. Stitch in place at the corner where the pin is to hold the ribbon in place.

Keep the ribbon on the inside (down on the quilt - not sticking up) as shown in the photo. It will come up and be a ribbon to hold the ornament once the backing is sewn and it is turned pretty side out.

Cut a piece of quilt batting and backing from fabric for your ornament the same size as the quilt top.

Place the quilt batting on the table, then place front and back pieces of quilt pretty sides together and pin through all three layers on the edge as shown. Mark a 3" opening on one side by putting double pins. You do not want to sew there because that is where you will turn your pillow pretty side out when you are done stitching it.

Stitch around the edge of the quilt using the pressure foot as your guide and pivoting at the corners. (Don't forget to leave the opening.)

Trim seams and clip corners.
How to sew a 25 patch mini quilt tree ornament. Turn quilt pretty side out and gently poke out corners. Hand stitch the opening closed.
Top stitch any way you would like. I top stitched around the outer boarder and then around each squared area as you can see in the photo.
  How Cute! Your Mini 25 Patch Quilt Ornament is done. All the great handmade ornaments you make also make wonderful gift toppers too!
