How to make cross stitch Christmas baubles

Step one

Cut our stitched piece leaving a 1.5cm (½in) seam allowance all the way around.

Step two

Cut a coordinating backing fabric to the same size, using your cut-out stitched piece as a template.

Step three

Fold your ribbon or cord in half to create a loop. Ours uses cord made with the Kreinik Custom Corder. Pin the ends of your cord at the top of the stitched piece, making sure the loop lies downwards.

Step four

Pin together front and back pieces with right sides facing and the loop tucked inside. Machine- or hand-stitch with a 1cm (¼in) seam allowance, leaving a small gap at the bottom. Turn through and press.

Step five

Fill your decoration firmly with wadding, then slip stitch the gap closed for a neat finish.
