Simple 9-patch ornaments

Simple 9-patch ornaments can be put together in no time, and you can use any type of Christmas fabrics and fabric scraps to stitch them up.

Here’s how to do it:

Step 1:

Make mini 9-patch blocks using nine 1 ½” squares. Your finished 9-patch will measure 3 ½” x 3 ½”. Quilt, if desired.

Step 2:

Use a piece of backing fabric measuring the same as your ornament front and sew the front to the back right sides together, leaving a small opening for turning.

Step 3:

Fill your ornament with a small amount of  polyester stuffing and then insert a hanging cord or ribbon in the opening.

Step 4:

Stitch the opening shut and then hand-stitch a bow to the bottom of the cord, covering your stitching lines.
