Hey Everybody! 

Not going to keep you here too long! But I wanted to put a Sewist spin on the traditional Christmas Tree Ball Ornament. And I think these are so perfect for creating a unique and simple decoration. These are also super useful because we have pets and young kids and the delicate tree decorations just aren't practical. But ones made of fabric? Yes please!!

Another idea if you're thinking about these for a kid friendly tree, is pairing them up with cute and colourful fabric. Throw in some Christmas themed pom-pom’s and you have yourself a tree like no other!
SUPPLIES:
  • Fabric Scraps
  • Pillow Stuffing
  • Needle and Thread

Cut out 6 Pieces of the Ornament Template. Cut out your pieces on the Bias, it will result in a nice smooth shape. 
Picture
Place two of the pieces right sides together and stitch down one side of the curve.

Clip your curves!

Take a third piece and attached it to your two pieces as shown above! You have now completed one half of the ball. 
Repeat this process for the remaining three pieces. 
Picture
Take your two halve and place one inside the other, right sides facing. Match up the raw edges and sew around joining them together. Leave a small opening through which you can turn your ball right sides out.

Picture
Stuff your ball with pillow stuffing. Avoid "balling" the stuffing to prevent lumpiness. Instead use fairly loose pieces. 
Picture
Use a ladder stitch or slip stitch to close your opening.
