Pattern no. 10 - Piper Piping
This detailed pattern shows you how to make colorful felt embroidered piper 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 18-page Piper Piping pattern features:

4 x 5.5 inch wool felt piper ornament with embroidery
3.5 inch hanging loop
Neat, digitally drawn, actual-sized pattern pieces that do not overlap
Step-by-step instructions with clear, professionally drawn diagrams and color sample photos
Resources section with stitching diagrams, tips and supply 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.

This is a wonderful pattern! Very clear instructions and interesting details. I’ve made all the ornaments in the 12 days of Christmas series released to date and all have the same clarity of instruction & attention to detail... this is my favorite so far.

I am so in love with this ornament series! The Piper is beautifully detailed, and the feather on the beret is one of my favorite elements. Plus, his face looks like Lin-Manuel Miranda - but I digress. The instructions are super clear, and this ornament is part of an heirloom quality collection. Thank you, Larissa, for sharing your talent by providing this pattern!

Just love these projects, I draw the patterns onto the felt with a heat erasable pen rather than using the transfer paper so do not have to pre-shrink felt, Thank you so very much for creating them :-)
