As most of us are staying at home right now, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I thought I'd offer this soft sculpture / embroidery tutorial as a free download ... in case you're looking for something to do.
It's also a great beginner sewing project for school children - for those of you at home with kids (me included). You can sew these using the sewing machine or by hand, and then decorate them with some simple embroidery stitches.
The pattern includes instructions for stuffed fabric star, tree and round ornaments which are easy to sew, make great presents and look lovely hung on a garland or mobile (or anywhere really). I've put together some simple instructions, photos, an illustrated embroidery stitch library and templates. You can download the PDF sewing pattern here, for free, ready for you to print at home.
I hope you enjoy making these. You'll find more Willowynn sewing patterns available to download here.

You are so kind to offer this pattern! Thank you! You have inspired me to try hand-sewing and this will be my beginning. I even bought a book on how to do it, so I could try making some things like yours, so...here goes. :-) Thank you. Blessings! May God keep you and yours quite safe. (I love Christmas, so this is a perfect beginning...)

Thank you, Margeaux, for returning to reply. So few bloggers do that now, but...commenters do come back to see if they do, anyway, and it warms our hearts to see a response. :-) Blessings...
