Advent Calendar Project ’15 – Week 17

Every Friday for the twenty-four weeks leading up to December 1st, we will be making a handmade Christmas ornament. Follow along and make them all or pick and chose your favorites.

I’ll admit it this week’s ornament is pretty much a knock-off of one currently at Ikea, but it is super cute and coming up with twenty-four new ornaments every year is tricky! Here is my version.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 17
And here is Ikea’s.

I did make a few changes to the original. I used a wooden bead for the head instead of a fabric ball, I think painting a face on wood is much crisper. I used a store-bought pom-pom on my hat instead of a yarn one, because when I tried to make a yarn one that small it was a mess. Finally, I made the boots grey instead of the flesh tone.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 17

Felt Elf Ornament

Supplies:

  • red felt
  • felt for hands and boots in colors of your choice
  • scissors, I found small embroidery scissors were best for cutting the small felt pieces
  • straight pins
  • glue stick (optional)
  • tacky glue
  • white embroidery floss
  • embroidery needle
  • 1/2″ wooden ball or bead
  • red fingering weight yarn
  • size 1 double-pointed knitting needles
  • small white pom-pom
  • pencil
  • acrylic paint in black and red
  • small paintbrush or toothpick

1. Cut out felt pieces – Print out the Felt Elf Ornament Template. Cut out the paper pattern pieces. Fold the red felt in half and place the body piece so the top is on the fold. I pinned the felt together and then used glue stick to hold the pattern in place. Cut through both laters, but not through the fold.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 17 Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 17
Cut two boots and two hands.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 17
2. If you want to embroider a design on the front of the body piece, do so now. I used three strands of floss and did a simple snowflake/star design.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 17
(You could also cut out a felt decoration like a white heart or sew a small decorative button on if embroidery isn’t your thing.)

3. Glue the hands and feet to the wrong side of the body. It doesn’t matter if you glue them to the front or back.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 17
4. Glue the wooden ball or bead to the center right side of the body piece. If you are using a bead like I did, make sure the hole is facing up and down. Let dry completely.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 17
5. Fold the body in half. Whip stitch under the arms and down the sides with two strands of embroidery floss.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 17
Glue the bottom of the body together.

6. Knit the hat – (If you are not a knitter, you could make a felt cone for a hat instead.)
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 17
I used fingering yarn on size one needles, my gauge was about 10 stitches per inch.

Cast on 24 stitches and divide between three needles. Join together to knit in the round placing a stitch marker between the first and last stitch to mark rows.
Work in knit2, purl2 ribbing until hat measures about 1″.
Decrease row 1: (k2, purl 2 together)6x (18 stitches)
Decrease row 2: (knit 2 together, p1)6x (12 stitches)
Cut the yarn leaving about a 10″ tail. Weave the tail through the stitches on the needles. Take the stitches off the needles and pull tight. Bring the end of the tail inside through the top, but leave a loop of the yarn off the top of the hat to use as a hanging loop. Tie the tail of the yarn in a knit inside. I tied it to the back of a stitch to keep it in place.

Weave in cast on tail.
Glue or sew the pom-pom to the top of the hat. Let dry.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 17
7. Add hair – Figure out where the hat will sit of the bead at the front of the elf. Make a little mark with a pencil where the bottom hit. Put a line of glue across that mark and glue small pieces (but longer than you wanted the finished hair) of embroidery floss along it. Basically, you’ll want the hat to cover the top of the strands and you’ll trim the bottom later. Use a straight pin to help separate the strands. Let dry.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 17
8. Glue the hat on to the head.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 17
9. Trim the hair to the length you would like.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 17
10. Paint on the face – I draw it on first with a pencil and then use a toothpick to paint it on.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 17

Advent Calendar Project ’15 – Week 12

Every Friday for the twenty-four weeks leading up to December 1st, we will be making a handmade Christmas ornament. Follow along and make them all or pick and chose your favorites.

This week was a doing some cross stitching into wood, so get out those power tools.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 12
Actually, if you are comfortable with a drill this is quite the easy project. The main thing is being careful with your planning so all your holes are pretty evenly spaced. (Mine could have been a touch better, but I still like it.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 12
You can find birch slices in all different sizes in most craft stores these days. You want some that are on the larger size, 2″ – 3″ for this project. I’ve even seen them with jute hanging loops already on them, though that added a lot to the cost, when I can drill a hole and put jute through it myself.

Cross Stitched Wood Slice Ornament

Supplies

  • wood slice
  • paper
  • ruler
  • pencil
  • tapestry needle
  • drill
  • small drill bit (I used 1/16″)
  • sandpaper (optional)
  • polyurethane
  • embroidery floss (I used metallic red)
  • pliers
  • 10″ jute twine or thin ribbon for hanging
  • glue (optional)

1. Figure out the design for your initial, I suggest you keep it pretty simple. You can find lots of cross stitch alphabets online.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 12
Using a ruler draw out a graph the size you want your stitches to be. Keep in mind you can’t have them do small that you can’t drill out the holes because they are too close together. Mine were 3/8″ x 3/8″. I probably could have gone down to 1/4″. Draw in your X’s.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 12
2. Use the needle to poke holes in the paper where you will need each of your holes to be drilled, the ends of each stitch.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 12
Place upside down (so it will be the right direction on the front) on the back of the wood slice and use a pencil to mark each of those holes. (I actually did this on the front on my slide and when I drilled I ended up getting marks I didn’t want from the drill. So, do what I say, not what I did.)

3. Carefully drill a hole through at each mark. Use the smallest drill bit you can that still allows your needle to go through.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 12
Drill a hole at the top of the wood slice for the hanging ribbon. You may want to use a bigger drill bit here, but I didn’t bother.

When finished, sand if necessary.

(If you want to seal the wood do so now, but be very careful not to fill the holes you just drilled.)

4. Cut a piece of embroidery floss and knot one end. I used all six strands in the floss to do my ornament. Using the tapestry needle cross stitch your design onto the wood slice. Make sure the thread lays evenly and tightly on the wood with each stitch. I had to go back and fix a few strands after this picture.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 12
Knot off at the end.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 12 Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 12
(Ignore the mess on the back of mine, it was a pinterest fail, but I didn’t want to waste the birch slice.)

I found it was tight to pull the needle through in the holes I had to go through more than once. Pliers made it much easier to grip the needle and pull it in those spots.

5. I like to make sure my embroidery floss knots stay knotted, especially with the metallic floss, so I put a little glue on them.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 12
6. Thread a single strand of jute twine or thin ribbon through the hole you made for hanging. Knot it against the wood slice. Then tie the ends together to form a hanging loop.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 12 Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 12
Knotting it first against the wood will give you a loop that is the right directions for hanging. (I hate when loops make an ornament hand sideways!)

Advent Calendar Project ’15 – Week 1

Every Friday for the twenty-four weeks leading up to December 1st, we will be making a handmade Christmas ornament. Follow along and make them all or pick and chose your favorites.

And off we go with our first ornament of 2015!
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 1
I really like the look of little needlework projects frames in embroidery hoops. I was wondering how I could get a similar look in a Christmas ornament. The smallest embroidery hoop I could find was 4″ and I wanted something smaller. I thought perhaps the jewelry aisle would be the answer and it was.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 1
What I ended up finding was this “story locket,” a locket with glass at the front and back. I got mine at Joann, but it looks like Michael’s, Amazon and Walmart all sell it as well. It was just the tiny size I wanted, 1″ and I like that is opened up.You could also do something very similar with a small picture frame.

As I was making this, I realized it would be a great gift for newlyweds. You could stitch their first initials with a plus sign on the front and put a small picture of them on the back. What a great personalized Christmas ornament.

Cross Stitched Locket Ornament

Supplies:

  • locket or something similar with a glass front.
  • 18 count cross stitch fabric
  • metallic embroidery floss
  • embroidery needle
  • scissors
  • decorative paper like scrapbook paper
  • glue
  • ribbon

1. Use graph paper or excel to chart out your pattern, keeping in mind the size of the opening you have available. Here is the chart I made.
joy
It was the perfect size for my 1″ opening.

2. Cross stitch the pattern onto your fabric using the metallic floss. I used one strand of floss doubled over. Because this is such a small thing to stitch, I didn’t bother with a hoop.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 1
Metallic floss can be a pain the in neck to work with because it snag and unravels. Weelittlestitches has a nice post with tips to make it easier. I used them for this and it was a breeze.

3. Once you have finished stitching, cut the design out so it is slightly bigger than the inside of your locket.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 1
It is always best to err on the side of bigger. I free-handed this but really should have used a compass.

4. If your locket or frame has an open back you’ll want something to back your embroidery. I chose I piece of red decorative scrapbooking paper. I think a photo would be great too. Cut a circle the same size at the stitched piece.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 1
Glue the stitched fabric to the paper. This will also help keep your fabric from fraying.

5. Trim the fabric/paper piece a little at a time until it fits snugly in the locket.
Advent Calendar Project '15 - Week 1
And here it is from the back.

Iron Craft ’15 Challenge #8 – French Knot Burst Pillow

For this challenge we were to make something for our home. I had bought some beautiful grey wool at Faribault Woolen Mills and my husband suggested I use to make an embroidered throw pillow. I had seen some different versions of French knot bursts online and that I thought would be a really cool design on a pillow. Plus, I had yarn in the right shades to do it.
Iron Craft '15 Challenge #8 - French Knit Burst Pillow
I love the way it turned out, but let me tell you this was a lot of work. I don’t even want to think about how many French knots I made. It also wasn’t as mindless as I thought it would be, I really spent time thinking about how the colors should blend together to get the look I wanted.
Iron Craft '15 Challenge #8 - French Knit Burst Pillow
It’s a little tricky to do a tutorial for this, but I took pictures along the way with each color and have some tips on how I did it. (Click on any picture in the tutorial to see it bigger.)

French Knot Burst Pillow

This is a really basic pillow, so I am not going to go into a ton of detail about sewing it together. I’m concentrating here more on the embroidery. Of course, this doesn’t have to be a pillow. You could do a wall hanging or anything that you would want to put a lot of embroidery on.

Supplies:

  • fabric – I used a light blanket wool. It was really easy to embroider, but not such an open weave that stitches came right through
  • fingering yarn in four colors – I used Knit Picks Palette in Black, Ash, Silver and Finnley Heather. I used yarn to get a bigger knot.
  • large eye needle – big enough to thread your yarn through
  • scissors
  • embroidery hoop (optional) – I didn’t use one, but you might find it useful.
  • thread to match fabric
  • sewing machine (optioanl)
  • hand sewing needle

1. Cut out the two of pieces fabric for your pillow (or whatever you are making). My pillow insert was 19″ square and since I like a well stuffed pillow I cut my fabric also 19″.

2. Decide where you want your burst to be on the front piece of fabric. I wanted mine off center.

A few notes about the French knotting. I did all single knots (one wrap around the needle). Try not to pull the yarn too tightly between knots especially as they get farther apart as the will pucker the fabric. I had a little puckering, but I pressed the back of the piece with a little steam and most of it went away.

Starting with the darkest color, use single French knots to make the center circle of the burst. Getting a good circle can be tricky, so you may want to draw one on your fabric as a guide. Because I didn’t want the lighter color of the fabric to show through, I made the knots close together.
Iron Craft '15 Challenge #8 - French Knit Burst Pillow
Continue making knots around the circle, but spacing them out farther as you go.
Iron Craft '15 Challenge #8 - French Knit Burst Pillow
3. Switch to next darkest color. Start filling in the gaps you left in the darker color. As you get farther from the center start leaving spaces farther and farther apart similar to what you did with the other color. Each color should go out farther than the color before it.
Iron Craft '15 Challenge #8 - French Knit Burst Pillow
In this picture I had already started with the third color, but you get the idea.
Iron Craft '15 Challenge #8 - French Knit Burst Pillow
4. Now, use the next lightest color. This time I did not fill in all the spaces between it and the color before. I’m starting to make the circle “burst.”
Iron Craft '15 Challenge #8 - French Knit Burst Pillow
Once again, keep work around the circle making the stitches further apart as you get farther from the center.
Iron Craft '15 Challenge #8 - French Knit Burst Pillow

5. Finally, use the lightest color.

6. Press if needed. Pin the front and back pieces of the pillow together right sides facing. Sew three sides together. I used a 1/4″ seam allowance. Turn right side out. Slip pillow insert in. Hand stitch fourth side shut.

Iron Craft ’14 Challenge #15 – Embroidered Shoes

For this challenge we were asked to embellish something. My inspiration came from this pair of embroidered sneakers that Susi sent me the link to. The discussion was whether it was hand or machine embroidered and whether it was done before or after the shoes were made (conclusions: by hand and after). And finally, we agreed that we should try it. The idea has been lingering with me ever since and here is the result.
Iron Craft '14 Challenge #15 - Embroidered Shoes
I didn’t want to spend a lot on the shoes, because truthfully, I wasn’t sure how they were going to turn out, so I went with a pair of Tom’s knock-offs from Target. My concern was whether the stitching would be hard to get neat and just look messy and amateurish. I didn’t want to end up with something I would never wear. Luckily, my fears were wrong, because I love the way these look and they’ve already been out and about.

Tips for Embroidering Shoes

1. The shoes – Look for canvas shoes that are soft or pliable. You want to easily be able to get a needle through them. Shoes similar to Converses, Toms, or Keds are perfect.

2. The needle – Use a sharp needle with a long eye that you can fit multiple strands of embroidery floss through.

3. The floss – I used 4 strands of floss for the flower, 3 for the tendrils and leaves and 2 for the french knots. (If you are wondering, I used DMC 600, 608 and 472.)

4. The pattern – I did a rough sketch of my pattern on paper before stitching it on. A dressmakers pencil is perfect for drawing the design you want to stitch on your shoes. A blue pencil will show up on dark and light canvas. It does rub off as you work, so I ended up drawing a little section on at a time as I went.
Iron Craft '14 - Challenge #15 - Embroidered Shoes
Think about how the shoe fits when deciding where to place the pattern. You don’t want it to be a place that rubs and could irritate your feet, especially if they are shoes you will wear without socks. I would avoid the toe and heel. Also think about where it will be easiest for you to get your hand in and out while stitching.

5. The stitches – I kept to simple stitches, split stitch for outlines and tendrils, straight stitches for filling in and a few double french knots.
Iron Craft '14 - Challenge #15 - Embroidered Shoes
It seemed easiest to do simple stitches, especially when I was trying to get into some tighter areas.
Iron Craft '14 - Challenge #15 - Embroidered Shoes
6. Knots – I didn’t want a bunch of big knots inside the shoes to rub against my feet. I started each color with one small knot and ended it by weaving into the back of the stitches. I barely feel it when the shoes are on.
Iron Craft '14 - Challenge #15 - Embroidered Shoes
7. Don’t worry about perfection – These will be on your feet and most people will not see them up close. One imperfect stitch will blend into the final product. Even though I did the same design on both shoes, I did not worry about them being exactly the same.

Iron Craft ’14 Challenge #11 – Embroidered Woven Placemats

For this Iron Craft challenge, we were to use supplies from the dollar store or things that cost a dollar. I had an added challenge in that I was on vacation overseas during all but the last two days of the challenge time. Still, I managed to pull together a project, Fourth of July themed embroidered placemats.
Iron Craft '14 Challenge #11 - Embroidered Placemats
My husband calls this project subtle, I call it last minute while jet lagged. Actually, I think it’s not too bad considering.
Iron Craft '14 Challenge #11 - Embroidered Placemats
I found these red woven straw (I think it’s more of a plastic straw) placemats at the dollar store and right away knew I wanted to try embroidering a design on them.
IMG_1261
I kept the design simple, just basic royal blue stars and white lines. I only did the edge of the placemats because that was all you really see once a plate is on them.
Iron Craft '14 Challenge #11 - Embroidered Placemats
I was afraid the weaving would be hard to embroider into, but the thicker sections of “straw” made it very easy. It also didn’t split at all, which is what makes me think it’s more of a plastic. The hardest part was figuring out even spacing on the stars.

I think these will look really cute with the stars and stripes table runner I made a few years back.

Iron Craft Challenge #5 – Appliquéd Houses Pillow

For this Iron Craft challenge we had to do something beginning with the letter “A”. Since I still hadn’t gotten around to recovering our throw pillows to match our new loft, (Six months is still new right?!) I decided to whip up an appliquéd one.
Iron Craft Challenge #5 - Appliquéd Pillow
My appliqué was inspired by the canal houses of Amsterdam, so I’ve got a double “a” project!

You may have seen me do this appliqué technique before, it is such an easy way to embellish clothing, pillows, whatever. I also find it a great way to use up scraps of fabric. This pillow has a couple quilting scraps, one from a lining of a purse and two from clothing.

Appliquéd Houses Pillow

Supplies:

  • enough fabric for a pillow case (or a pre-made plain one), I used two 18″ x 18″ squares of wool felt for an 18″ pillow insert (I like to make my cover slightly smaller so I get a nice stuffed throw pillow)
  • matching thread
  • sewing machine (optional)
  • paper
  • pencil
  • ruler
  • scissors, fabric and paper
  • straight pins
  • fabric for appliqués (I find it best not to use something that frays super easily)
  • two-sided fusible webbing
  • embroidery floss
  • hand sewing needle

1. Cut out the fabric squares to make your pillow case. I was making a very simple case that is sewn shut on all four sides, but you can add a zipper or envelope closure. You just need a plain front.

2. Draw out the pattern you want to appliqué onto a piece of paper.
Iron Craft Challenge #5 - Appliquéd Pillow
I used a ruler to get nice straight and even points lines. Cut out the houses (or whatever shape you are doing), these will be your pattern pieces.

3. Pin the pattern pieces to the fabrics you are using for the appliqué and cut them out.
Iron Craft Challenge #5 - Appliquéd Pillow

4. Adhere the two-sided fusible webbing to the back of the appliqué pieces following the directions on the webbing. (I have used some that are sticky without ironing and some that require you to iron it on.) Cut the webbing so it is just covering the whole back of the appliqué piece.

5. Lay the piece out on the fabric that will be the front of your pillow. I used a ruler to keep everything straight.
Iron Craft Challenge #5 - Appliquéd Pillow
Iron in place following the directions on your webbing.

6. Using the embroidery floss and hand sewing needle, stitch along the edge of each of your appliqué pieces. I used three strands of floss and did a very basic split stitch about 1/8″ in from the edge. I find this gives the appliqués good definition (and helps the appliqués stay put if the webbing isn’t great).

7. Finish sewing your pillow together. I just pinned the front and back squares together with the right sides facing in and then sewed three sides together with my sewing machine. I turned the pillowcase right side out, added the insert and hand sewed the last side using a whip stitch.

A one-of-a-kind appliquéd pillow in no time!
