Diy Candy Cane Ornament Tutorial
Here’s how to make them:
Step 1 – Print out the template
Step 2 – Add fusible fleece to the fabric
Step 3 – Fold the fabric
Step 4 – Transfer the template to fabric
Using a disappearing fabric marker, trace the template ONCE to the right side of the fabric. You’ll fold the fabric, so place the template to one side of the fabric piece (not the center).
Step 5 – Stitch the Diy Candy Ornament
Using a straight stitch, sew the layers together, sewing exactly on the line. Don’t add any seam allowance.
Step 6 – Trim
Cut around the sewn ornament, roughly 1/8″ (3 mm) away from the stitching line. You can use pinking shears.
Step 7 – Add a short ribbon for hanging
Diy Candy Ornaments – Template 2
There are two templates on pattern page 11 – this one is for a candy ornament, the one above was for a candy cane. Same procedure as before: add fusible fleece to the fabric, trace the template, sew and then trim it, using pinking shears.
