Hello! Please note: This is a PDF pattern download, not the actual ornament! This does not include materials. This pattern is written in English.

Pattern no. 11 - Lady Dancing
This detailed sewing pattern shows you how to make colorful felt embroidered lady dancer 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 17-page Lady Dancing pattern features:

- 4 x 5.25 inch wool felt lady dancing ornament with embroidery
- 3.5 inch hanging loop
- Neat, digitally drawn, actual-sized pattern pieces that do not overlap
- Step-by-step, detailed instructions with clear, professionally drawn diagrams and color sample photos
- Resources section with stitching diagrams, tips and supply links

This 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, chenille stem, 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.

The detail in this heirloom quality ornament is amazing! I love this Dancing Lady so much. The instructions were super clear, and it's virtually impossible to mess this up, unless you draw a weird face on the bead. Thank you, Larissa, for the lovely pattern!

Another beautiful pattern by Larissa. The instructions are SO easy to follow and the results are SO professional. I am working on a set for myself and my husband and our three (grown) kids. Everyone loves their ornaments. Thank you so much for you hard work and mad designing skills Larissa! Can't wait to see number 12!

This caught my eye but I didn't know the source, so I called around & found the designer and able to buy this strikingly wonderful piece. I plan to make her often, once I teach myself how to paint her head. The designer sent me fabulous directions so looking forward to the whole process.
