Make your ornament as plain or fancy as you desire.

Make it plain! You can use a single fabric (all 4 hearts the same color) or go scrappy with all 4 hearts different fabrics.  Make it fancy! You can make a truly special, customized ornament by using a solid fabric as one side (half) of the heart. Use the plain side as your canvas!  Embroider a name, date or special message. Or draw, paint, write, appliqué, embellish with beads, buttons, silk ribbon or hand embroidery, or other creative, personal, artful ideas.

Please read entire pattern carefully all the way through at least once before you cut or sew.

*Note: Depending on the width of fabric, you should be able to get 3 +  Large or 4 + Small ornaments from .25 yard of light + .25 yard of medium to dark fabric . Directional fabrics may yield less. You may also choose to make the ornament from a single fabric or from 4 different fabrics for a scrappy look. I recommend making one with contrasting fabrics first so you get a good feel for the construction process.

    Thank you for your ornament patterns. I made some of the havf a heart and the 2009 Elf Point ornaments and am going to try to decorate my tree next year with a variety of your ornament patterns. My daughter and daughter-in-law really liked them too. Thanks again.
