It’s the Holidays and you want to make something special to dress up your Christmas tree or a perhaps a package.?Let’s pull out some holiday fabrics and make a few 3-dimensional Holly Leaf ornaments.?The leaves themselves are made using free-motion zigzag on your machine and there is a little bit of handwork of embellishments for assembly.?Today I am sharing a step by step tutorial on how I assemble these holiday gems.

Trace Holly Leaf Pattern onto template plastic and cut out

Using a double sided fusible like Steam a Seam 2 and a medium iron, fuse your choice of fabric to felt

Using your template, trace several holly leaves onto your fused fabric with a permanent marker

Set your machine up for free-motion. Make sure your sewing machine is cleaned and well oiled. Drop your feed dogs and attach your free-motion foot.

Load your machine and your bobbin with matching thread. Use a beautiful rayon or blended cotton or metallic.

Set your machine for a zigzag satin stitch approximately 2.5 to 3.0 in width. You do not have to set your length, because you are sewing free-motion.

Starting at the top of the holly leaf, stitch free-motion zigzag around your leaf design. Once you get back to the top of the leafaccent pillow case baby burlap, switch to free-motion straight stitch and add the veins to your leaves.? Move onto the next leaf and repeat.

You can switch it up by using one color thread for the outline of the leaf and another color, perhaps metallic for the veins of the leaf.

Once you have completed a “sheet” of leaves, use a sharp pair of scissor and cut out each leaf by trimming close to the stitching lines.

This is where the handwork starts. Load a size 10 beading needle with beading thread.

Cut a 6″ piece of the 1/8″ ribbon, make a loop and tie a knot. This is your “hanging loop”.

Take three leaves, pivot them a little and with your beading thread, using your threaded needled and a thimble, stitch up and down through the leaves. On the second time of going back through them, stitch through the knot of the hanging loop.

Now it is time to add your embellishments. Using the same needle and beading thread, add a shanked button or sequins, beads and trims.

These make perfect?ornaments for the tree, but also work to dress up a package or a bottle of wine for a great gift. You can also change them up by changing the color of your thread to a red, burgundy or even a metallic gold.
