Basic Skills Necessary:

  • If you can do basic hand stitches and are familiar with sewing and embroidery terms, then you can do this project!

Pattern Description:

THIS LISTING IS FOR THE DIGITAL PATTERN ONLY, not a finished ornament or a kit.

Time for some cozy holiday hand making! This original PDF pattern is the second in a series of twelve ornament projects based on the Twelve Days of Christmas. Other patterns in the series will follow. The pattern shows you how to make colorful, embroidered turtle dove ornaments for your Christmas tree or for special handmade gifting. This ornament is sewn entirely by hand. Choose your own colors and customize them to any holiday decor. There is room on the back of the ornament to personalize with a name and date.

If you can do basic hand stitches and are familiar with sewing and embroidery terms, then you can do this project! This pattern utilizes a Sulky brand water-soluble stabilizer which makes putting the ornaments together easy, fast and accurate. THERE IS NO PATTERN TRACING AND NO TRANSFERRING THE EMBROIDERY DESIGNS BY HAND. WOO-HOO! (If you can't use the Sulky stabilizer, I've also included tips for that.)

The 12-page Turtle Dove pattern features:

5.5 x 3 inch wool felt turtle dove ornament with embroidery
5 inch hanging loop
Neat, professionally drawn, actual-sized pattern pieces that do not overlap
Step-by-step instructions with clear professionally drawn diagrams and photos
Resources section with stitching diagrams, tips and supply links

Materials used to make these ornaments are commonly available. They include: wool or wool-blend felts, embroidery floss, and stuffing. A complete list of materials is in the photo of the pattern page above.

This pattern is in PDF format on 8.5 x 11 paper, so you can print it from your regular printer at home on standard paper and printable stabilizer, as many times as you need for personal use.


NOTE: This decoration has small parts and may present a choking hazard. This is not an ornament project designed for children under the age of three.

COTTAGE INDUSTRY SELLERS: If you are a home sewer, YES, it is OK to make and sell items from this pattern as long as you credit me for the pattern. No mass production allowed.
