Supplies:

Step 1: Cut out initial template. I used Word, Arial Black font, size 350.

Step 2: Make a 4.5 in x 4.5 in square using scrap fabric. Sew the right side ends to together. I used three pieces of coordinating fabrics.

Step 3: Using initial template, determine your design.

Step 4: Iron down seams and iron onto a piece of fusible fleece batting to add weight to the ornament.

Step 5: Cut the initial shape on both layers of fabric.

Step 6: Place and pin ribbon in the top seam. Sew along all edges, leaving raw edges.
