Hello! This is a PDF pattern download, not the actual ornaments! This is a pattern only and does not include materials. This pattern is written in English.
Pattern no. 1 - Partridge & Pear
This detailed pattern shows you how to make colorful embroidered partridge and pear ornaments. Perfect for your Christmas tree or for special handmade gifting. The ornaments are sewn entirely by hand. Choose your own colors, or use my color guides found here: http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/p/twelve-days.html).
I’ve always loved the traditional Twelve Days of Christmas song, so I designed this series of hand sewn folk ornaments for each of the twelve days, based on the original carol from 1780. The order is a bit different towards the end from the modern song*, and day four is colly bird, an old English term for blackbird. (Calling bird was substituted in later.) Read more about the series here on my blog: http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/p/twelve-days.html
*A supplement pattern, Modern Numbering, is now available in my shop to easily re-number the patterns 9-12 to match the modern song, if you so prefer! (9-12 is all that is needed, because the original and modern carol are numbered the same up through number 8, Maid a-Milking.)

Materials used to make these ornaments include: Sulky/Pellon stabilizer, wool or wool-blend felts, embroidery floss, cotton pipe cleaner, and stuffing. A complete list of materials is in the photo of the pattern page above. Zoom to read through it.
HOW HARD ARE THESE TO MAKE? If you can do precision cutting, basic hand stitches (running stitch, whipstitch, backstitch and French knot) and are familiar with sewing and embroidery terms, then you can make this project and make it well!
HERE'S WHY: this pattern utilizes a Sulky brand water-soluble stabilizer which makes putting the ornament together easy, fast and accurate. Simply print or copy the pattern to the stabilizer, adhere it to the felt, and embroider right on the lines.
NO TEDIOUS PATTERN TRACING OR EMBROIDERY TRANSFER. Fantastic! (If you can't use the Sulky stabilizer, I've also included instructions for that.)
This pattern is in PDF format on 8.5 x 11 paper, so you can print it from your regular printer at home on standard paper and stabilizer, as many times as you need for personal use.
NOTE: This decoration has small parts and may present a choking hazard. This is not an ornament project designed for children under the age of three.

These are a bit addicting! I made my first one just a few days ago, the Three French Hens. I made that for my sister in law who has chickens. While I thought it'd be difficult because I'm an embroidery novice, it was very easy! Emboldened in how quick and fun these are, I got the partridge in a pear tree. Wonderful pattern with lots of explanations.
The pattern and instructions are detailed and easy to follow - I REALLY appreciated the tip to use Sulky Fabri-Solvy, it was a game changer for me! I made the partridge and pear ornaments (several pairs), and they turned out great. I was very pleased with the results, and judging by the response from family and friends can say the whole project was a complete success.
I love this pattern! I have next to no experience with hand sewing and I can't believe how nicely this turned out!
Excellent pattern instructions and really pleased with the results. I didn't use the Sulky but used a fine fabric marker which worked quite well. Highly recommend these patterns to make beautiful ornaments. I can't wait to make the next one.
