How To Make Quilted Ornaments

YouTube is a great resource for new project ideas and today I would like to share one of my favorites with you.

angiejanca has made this wonderful tutorial video explaining step by step how to make quilted ornaments. There is no sewing involved. All you need is fabric, straight pins and a foam ball.

I just followed Angie’s simple instructions and voilĂ …

I just happen to have a lot of pink fabric left over from another project, which is why my ornament is sooo pink. I suggest using fabrics in opposing colors like Angie did in the video. i.e. Red & Blue, Red & Green… I added the sequins just to spice it up a little. In total, I would say it took me about 4 hours to complete, including the time it took for me to measure and cut all the fabric. I’ve seen these in the past and always thought they looked so complicated. I’m surprised at how easy it is.

  1. This is an interesting design, I’ve made similar ones over the last few years but this is much prettier, I love the star shape at the front and would never have figured out how to do it. Mine all just overlap and look like pinecones. I’ll be getting the decorations out in a couple of weeks! So i’ll ask John to take a photo again. I also have one I made last year completely covered in sequins that looks like a Christmas pudding complete with a sprig of holly and having just looked at your older videos I now know what I can do with all the holly leaf sequins. I love the holly ornament, so simple but striking. Keep the ideas coming, I am good at copying but awful at coming up with my own, I need you :-) hope your show went well, tell us all about it.

    1. I would love to see your ornaments as always, Julie. Thanks for letting me post your other pictures on the site.
      I’ve been ill recently so I haven’t been up to making anything new. I’m on the mend and hope to have something out for y’all by the end of the week.
      The show didn’t go quite as well as I had hoped but I broke even so that is good.
      As always, thanks for your wonderful comment and I look forward to seeing more pictures.

  2. I just finished my first quilted ornament. I need to put the ribbon on in the middle. It took me 6 hrs. It certainly is a challenge! I love it. Enjoyed your website. Fun!

    1. Yes Valerie, it can certainly be time consuming and challenging. It’s so satisfying when you finish an ornament that you know you really put a lot of effort into, isn’t it? Thanks for your comment.

  3. Thanks so much for your blog!!! I love fabric but don’t enjoy most types of sewing (I do love embroidery). You have opened a whole new world for me – thank you, thank you!! I am so excited to get started!!

  4. I made these ornaments about 36 years ago I don’t remember where I got the pattern. I loved making them as they turned out so pretty. I made them for all occasions but mostly for Christmas. I made some when I was in the hospital and gave one to all the staff on the floor. Unfortunately I had a fire in my house and the pattern was lost. I worked in Hamilton at the time and I stopped in at a crafts store in Beverly on my way home and I saw the booklet for making them. Alas I had no money on me and it was the week-end. When I stopped by the following the following Monday the booklet was gone. I have been looking for the pattern ever since I finally got the idea to look on the web and viola there it was. Now all I have to do is get my printer running again and I will be all set. I planned on making them my church fair.

  5. Can someone give me some help on the ribbons on the top of the ornament? I love the way it looks but I’m not sure how to do it.

  6. Thanks for the being able to watch your video. It was so interesting and very helpful. I hope to make several in the next couple of weeks for christmas gifts.
