FREE Quick Love Dove Ornament

This has run twice in the past (2014 and 2017) and is still worth repeating. Especially if it's FREE! I'll let you read the post and see if you agree. I created this from one of my OLD calendar patterns and also used it as a workshop demo.

 I have a lot of new blog followers who may never have seen this quick and easy Christmas tree ornament.

Quick sewing 8 dove ornaments with Audrey
"Hi, mom. Can you help me? I need 8 dove ornaments for a Christmas exchange next week."

Oh, sure. I'll put my magician hat on and wave my magic wand and voila! - 8 quick ornaments.

Lucky for me I had a Santa sack of various crafts sitting in my hall closet (honest) that I had pulled out last week looking for something. In there is my trusty Dove Ornament pattern. And I even had a sample ornament to remind me of what they look like.

I did the fusing. Audrey did the cutting out. I quick stitched the gold thread on the outside. I was shocked to see I still had some gold cording. We found that 10" lengths worked best.

Here is a single ornament front and back:

Holiday Dove: 4" x 5"
 Use pretty fabric on the back, too.

Holiday Dove, reverse
You can get the FREE PATTERN at my web site. It's a one page pdf that also includes a simple heart shape. All you need are scraps of pretty fabric, bits of fusible webbing and batting. Everything is sandwiched, fused and then stitched. I use freezer paper as my template material.

    1. Glad you like it. Merry Christmas to you, too!

  2. Really neat ornament. Thank you for sharing. Enjoy the holidays!! :-) :-)

    1. Thanks, Angie. Sometimes simple is the best, right?

  3. I'm already planning my 2020 projects, and I was wanting to find a nice ornament I could make and mail. The Dove pattern is perfect. I'm thinking if my plan comes together, I will be able to add some embellishments or embroidery, too. Thanks so much

    1. Hi,Kay. I know you will enjoy this. And even after making those 8, I could have gone on for more. Simple is good! Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Thank you, Debby! Maybe this is the year I'll make them!
