Plus, you can use any fabric scraps you have to sew them - they are perfect for using up those fabric scraps you have left over from other Christmas sewing projects!

You'll need:

  • fabric (solids or prints, anything cute)
  • grossgrain ribbon
  • matching thread
  • sewing machine
  • iron
  • pins
  • scissors (or rotary cutter)
  • a template (you can use mine)

A Free PDF Template



Do you love repurposing and reusing same sewing patterns for new projects? Good! I repurposed my own free PDF Pattern from a double-sided bunting banner post for this Christmas. It worked perfectly! So feel free to use the same free template, too.

Get it on Craftsy, where I post all my PDF patterns (the majority are free), if you click here (search for BUNTING BANNER PATTERN)

Cone-Shaped Christmas Ornaments Tutorial


Now, to the tutorial. It's so simple, you'll see! It's partly borrowed from another post of mine, too!
Just for convenience' sake,  I am copying steps 2-4 from the bunting banner tutorial, since you'll need them to complete this project - and I don't want to keep sending you around and spend time searching.  The rest of the steps is different and you'll find them here only.

PART ONE: TWO STRAIGHT STITCHES



1) Print the free PDF template, preferably on cardboard (so it will last longer). Use it to cut out 2 pieces of fabric for each cone-shaped Christmas ornament.

 2) Put the two pieces right sides together.

3) Sew along the 2 long sides. Leave the top part of the triangle open. Then trim off excess fabric at the tip of the triangle to make the point of the cone-shaped ornament reeeeeeally nice (But be careful NOT to cut into the seam line!)
Then press flat for easier turning.

 4) Turn right side out. Push out the tip of the triangle using a point turner tool (or simply a knitting needle, chopstick or something similar). Then press to get perfect form.

PART TWO: STUFF + CLOSE.


5) Add soft toy stuffing. Make sure to push some of it all the way to the tip of the cone. (You can use a chopstick for that.)

6) Handstitching: baste-stitch the entire way around the opening

7)  Slowly pull and tighten the seam.

8) Insert the ribbon into the narrow opening and, still using the same sewing thread, sew it in. A few stitches to secure the seam and that's it.

These plush hanging softies are the perfect way to add a punch of color to your tree without any risk of breakage and mess. Especially if you have a little child at home. Unbreakable, they can even double as toys!
