Make this pretty Christmas tree ornament by using bird clip art, iron-on transfer paper, and fabric.

What You Need:

  • Bird clip art
  • Iron-on transfer paper
  • Cream print fabric
  • Cream fabric
  • Polyester fiberfill
  • Fabrics glue
  • Narrow red trim

How to Make It:

  1. Measure the bird clip art and add 6 inches to each side. Cut the cream print fabric to this size.
  2. Following the transfer paper manufacturer's instructions, center and transfer the bird clip-art image onto the cream print fabric.
  3. Cut the fabric out approximately 1 inch around the bird, using the outline of the bird as a guide for the shape. Cut out a matching back from cream fabric.
  4. Sew the bird transfer and the matching back together with right sides facing, leaving a 2-inch-wide opening along the side.
  5. Turn the ornament right side out through the opening and stuff the ornament with polyester fiberfill. Slip-stitch the opening closed.
