These cute reindeer ornaments come together in about 40 minutes and are a lot of fun to make.  They were inspired by the Handmade Christmas from Frocks and Frolics.  Though, I was not entirely loving how large they were and wanted a more delicate design for my tree.  That is how I came up with this one!

I decided to use up-cycled and eco-friendly deadstock fabric to make these ornaments, because, hey if we can make our planet just a little bit better let’s do it!

Begin by cutting out two squares of fabric that is the same size as the dotted square on the pattern.  Place them right sides together.  Cut out the deer pattern and pin this to your fabric.

Lower your stitch length to about 1mm so that your stitches will hold the fabric together even on all those tight curves.

Stitch around the template making sure to leave space between the top antler for the hanging string and on the saddle so you can turn it.

Cut out the reindeer that you have sewn onto your fabric squares.  Leave about a 1/2″ to 1/4″ seam allowance all the way around.

Clip all the curves.

 STEP 4.

Take a 10″ length of twine or ribbon and place a safety pin through both ends.  Feed this through the hole by the saddle up to the hole in the top antler.  Once it is just fed through remove the safety pin and stitch the rest of the antler to secure the ends of the twine creating the holder for our reindeer ornament.

Turn the reindeer ornament right sides out and press (ensuring that the opening by the saddle is pressed under and even).

Using small amounts of fibre fill begin to fill up the reindeer ornament getting into all the nooks and crannies.

Close the opening by hand sewing a ladder stitch.

Cut out the saddle out of felt and attach by hand using a blanket stitch using a double thickness of embroidery floss.

Using a bead needle push the knot through the reindeer’s head where you will want the first eye to be placed and push it through to the other side.  Attach a small bead to that end and push the needle back to the other side.  Attach the other bead to that side of the head.  Go through the beads several times to secure them in place.
