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.
