There’s No Sewing Involved!
These Log Cabin style ornaments are easy to make and so beautiful. Hang them on the tree, give them as gifts, use them in centerpieces and sprinkle them throughout the house.
They’re wonderful in colors for other seasons, as well. Dig into your stash and create combinations of fabric in colors you’ll enjoy for years.
To make an ornament you’ll need a 3″ smooth styrofoam ball (you’ll find a selection here) and a lot of fine straight pins (these work nicely). Rather than sew fabric pieces together, you’ll pin them to the ball. Finish your ornament with pretty ribbon to match.
A heart-shaped ornament can also be made. You’ll need a foam heart shape of about 3.5″ (this one will work).
You’ll find fully illustrated instructions for both ornaments in the following pattern from Miranda’s Ornaments.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
