Finish the Ornament

1.  Cut a piece of cardboard and quilt batting to the size indicated by the outer ornament-shape lines on the pattern. With the design centered, trim the embroidered muslin piece 1-1/2" larger in both directions than the cardboard shape.

2. Use pinking shears to cut a shape from red felt 1/2" larger in both directions than the cardboard shape.

3. Glue the batting shape to the cardboard. Center the batting side of the cardboard on the back of the embroidered muslin piece. Wrap the muslin edges to the back and tape in place.

4. For the hanging loop, cut a 1/2x4-1/2" strip of red wool felt. Fold the strip in half, and glue the ends at the center top back of the cardboard. Glue the felt to the back of the ornament.
