Please note: This is a PDF pattern download, not the actual ornament! This is a pattern only and does not include materials. This pattern is written in English.Pattern no. 8 - Maid a-MilkingThis detailed pattern shows you how to make colorful embroidered milkmaid ornaments. Perfect for your Christmas tree or for special handmade gifting. The ornament is 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! (None other is needed, because the original and modern carol are numbered the same up through number 8, Maid a-Milking.)The 15-page Maid a-Milking pattern features:4.25 x 5.5 inch wool felt milk maid ornament with embroidery3.5 inch hanging loopNeat, digitally drawn, actual-sized pattern pieces that do not overlapStep-by-step instructions with clear, professionally drawn diagrams and color sample photosResources section with stitching diagrams, tips and supply linksThis pattern PDF will be available for INSTANT DOWNLOAD once your payment is completed! You will get an automatic email from Etsy with your download links.Materials used to make these ornaments are commonly available. They include: Sulky stabilizer, wool or wool-blend felts, wood beads, 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.COTTAGE INDUSTRY SELLERS: If you are a home sewer, YES, it is OK to make and sell items from this pattern as long as you credit me for the pattern.

Sorry, I can't make any custom orders. I just don't have the time. If you invent a way to add more hours to the day, please let me know. :-). There is a list of independent crafters on my blog who make custom orders from my patterns. Feel free to contact them: http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/p/mmmakers.html
You can find A LOT of great information on this resource page for my heirloom wool felt Christmas ornaments. (Including detailed color guides and links to felt/floss bundles and kits):
I include sizing details in the individual pattern listings, but they may not be in the bundled listings. The average size for my Christmas ornaments is about 4 x 5 inches. It varies of course, because the shapes vary a good bit.
I do not offer wholesale printed patterns at this time. It’s on my to do list!
Because my patterns are downloads and not emailed, it’s best to give your lucky giftee an Etsy gift card (or cash, Visa gift card, etc...) along with a link to my shop. That way your friend can choose a gift and download it from their own Etsy account (which is free and easy to create). Purchased patterns are backed up at Etsy for them and available anytime in case of computer crashes, lightning strikes, or toddlers with peanutbuttery hands. The links do not expire.
If you purchase either with your account or as a guest, Etsy sends a purchase receipt with links to your patterns to the email address you entered. You can use the email links to download your pattern. Do not use the Etsy mobile app to download - it doesn't work.
If you purchased with your Etsy account, you can also always find your patterns under Account > Purchases and Reviews. The links do not expire.
If you purchased as a guest, the email receipt is the ONLY way for you to access the patterns. I recommend you link your guest purchases to your Etsy account. You can follow the instructions included on this page: https://help.etsy.com/hc/en-us/articles/115015663607-How-to-Check-Out-as-a-Guest-on-Etsy
No, my downloads do not include SVG files. Because of the way my ornaments are made, it does not work well to use an automated cutter. You'll get the best results if you trim the pieces by hand.

Love it …. Great instructions
Love this pattern so much!! I will updating the review when I have it ready. Thank you so much!
Always happy with pattern from mmmcrafts.
Oh my gosh, I can’t believe how great this pattern is! I wanted to make a Polish folk dancer ornament for a family member, when I stumbled across these beautiful patterns. I followed the directions exactly, and wound up with a perfect looking ornament! My finished project looked so professional, and I consider myself a beginner when it comes to embroidery. Wowza- I wish all patterns were written this well. 10/10!!!
