Transfer the motif

The easiest way to transfer a motif to felt is water soluble stabilizer, also called stick-n-stitch embroidery paper. You can trace the pattern onto the stabilizer or print on it. Then stick it onto the felt, stitch over it, and wash the stabilizer away afterward. If you want to learn more about this type of transfer method, read this article.

How to make the felt ornaments

When you finished embroidering all 4 flowers, cut out the felt in an egg shape. Cut out an additional piece of felt per ornament for the back.

Prepare strips of bast or ribbon with a length of about 4 inches/10cm. Fold the ribbon and insert the ends between both layers of felt. Attach the ribbon with 2 crossed stitches that are sewn through all layers and the ribbon.

Continue to embroider around the felt egg shape with blanket stitch. If you want, you can add a bit of stuffing to the egg.

Now, hang your new easter ornaments into some branches 😀
