1. Layer ornament back right side down, batting, and ornament front right side up.
2. Using the circle template, trace around the circle with a marking tool. Pin all layers in place if desired.
3. Using a decorative stitch on your sewing machine (we used a zigzag stitch), sew layers together about 1⁄4" from edge of each circle.
4. Using pinking shears, trim around edge of the circle, cutting through all layers, to make an ornament.
5. Fold a 6"-long piece of ribbon in half. Position raw ends on ornament back about 3/8" from top edge of unit. To attach hanger and complete ornament, hand-stitch ribbon ends securely to back and batting only, making sure no stitches show on front of ornament.
