Pattern no. 12 - Lord a-Leaping
This detailed 19 page sewing pattern shows you how to make colorful embroidered leaping lord and true love heart 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! (None other is needed, because the original and modern carol are numbered the same up through number 8, Maid a-Milking.)

The 19-page Lord a-Leaping sewing pattern features:

- 3 x 5 inch wool felt lord a-leaping ornament with embroidery and poseable legs
- 3.25 x 3.5 inch wool felt true love heart ornament with embroidery
- 4 inch hanging loops
- Neat, professionally drawn, actual-sized pattern pieces that do not overlap
- Step-by-step instructions with clear, digitally drawn diagrams
- Color sample photos
- Resources section with stitching diagrams, tips and supply links

Materials used to make these ornaments include: Sulky stabilizer, wool or wool-blend felts, embroidery floss, cotton pipe cleaners, chenille stem, wood beads, 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: These decorations have 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 with your own clever hands from this pattern, as long as you credit me for the pattern. No mass production allowed. Please review: https://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/p/selling-guide.html

This pattern is so AWESOME! The moveable legs are genius. I just love all the humor injected into the instructions... which are detailed and easy to follow. The seller is great, too. I don't think I can say enough good things.
