  2. Double the fabric with the patterned side on the outside for both sides and then pin the pattern to holiday fabric (such as a Christmas calico) or felt so that you cut out two matching pieces for each shape.

  3. With the right (patterned) sides together, sew each ornament by hand or machine, leaving a small space open for turning. If gluing, apply a line of fabric glue around the wrong side edge of the bottom shape.
  4. Turn ornament right side out.
  5. Stuff lightly with cotton or fiberfill.
  6. Hand-stitch the opening closed.
  7. Cut several slightly smaller shapes from the batting (make a copy of the pattern and then trim it down about 3/4ths of an inch. Also cut several squares of batting that fit in the center of the batting shapes to give a little more dimension to the ornament.
  8. Lay quilt batting in the center of the shape. Or place a ball of cotton or fiberfill in the center of the shape.
  9. Decorate with felt shapes, buttons, ribbon, rick rack or lace as desired.
