Get onto the nice list this year with an adorable letter to Santa ornament. Making these fun letters to Santa are deceptively simple thanks to an assist from a medium temp iron. The letters are also versatile, leave this flap open to create a gift tag or add a keepsake wish list or photo or just sew down the flap and hang from your Christmas tree for sweet homemade ornament you’ll cherish year after year.

You will need:

Template- Letter to Santa Pattern or see end of post

7″ x 7″ felt for letter I used White*

Embroidery thread in Red and Green

Iron (set to medium for wool blend felt)

Stamp Buttons 

Sequins; I used Holly and Retro Burst

String or cord for hanging (optional)

Sewing Needle

*Matching Thread

Cut 1 letter shape from white felt.

IMG_6317Trace out letters and postage shapes with pencil. I think the ornaments take on a more homespun look when traced out free hand and the letters are a little uneven, Let your child write “Santa” and embroider for an even more unique family heirloom.

IMG_6319Stitch postage and “Santa” from contrasting embroidery thread colors.

IMG_6324Iron side flaps, top and bottom down so they lay flat.

American Felt and Craft - hundreds of felt colors- worldwide shipping, felt supply

IMG_6326Sew stamp button and burst sequin to front taking care to not sew through the side flaps. IMG_6331Fold bottom over sides and stitch up along the side with an overcast stitch and matching thread.

Add the holly sequin detail to the end of the flap. You can leave this flap open to create a gift tag or add a keepsake wish list or sew down the flap if you prefer. IMG_6358
