Snowman Ornament

This ornament is so quick and easy, the kids will be able to help finish them! I chose the closeup snowman design in the Snowman Snowflakes set by Wind Bell Embroidery but any of the designs will work.

Start by hooping a layer of fabric type water soluble stabilizer. Spray the back of a piece of felt with a temporary spray adhesive and gently press it in the hoop on top of the stabilizer.

Lay a piece of film type water soluble stabilizer on top of the felt and baste it in place. Float a piece of sturdy tear away stabilizer under the hoop. Embroider the design.

When embroidery is finished, remove the basting stitches and the film type water soluble stabilizer.

Take everything out of the hoop and remove the tear away stabilizer. Cut a piece of double sided fusible, like Steam A Seam 2 Light, and fuse it on the back of the embroidery. Add another layer of white felt and fuse it to the back of the embroidered felt.

Trim close to the embroidery. You could add hot fix crystals or beads if you like. Then, add a hanger and it is ready for the tree!
