How to make a handmade Santa Pillow Tree ornament.

This handmade Santa Pillow Tree ornament is too cute! For years I've had a version of this craft offered in my sewing studio as a Christmas pillow for students to make, which turned out to be a very popular item during the holiday season. So I decided to make the ornament version too!

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

Clip the corners of the handmade tree ornament. Clip the corners and trim seams if necessary.
