A printable PDF tutorial and embroidery pattern for stitching lots of pretty doves!

IMPORTANT: this listing is for a digital pattern, NOT for the finished item.


This PDF includes templates and step by step instructions for sewing felt dove ornaments for Christmas.

It includes templates for two sizes of the dove ornaments, plus instructions for all the embellishments pictured. There's also a "Peace on Earth" dove embroidery pattern, which you can stitch to anything you fancy or frame in a 6 inch embroidery hoop.

Stitches required for the felt doves: whip stitch and running stitch (optional: backstitch and blanket stitch)

Suggested stitches for the dove embroidery: backstitch and French knots. Embroidery transfer instructions & stitch/colour guides are NOT included.

The PDF is designed to be printed on A4 paper. It's 13 pages long and includes terms of use, full step by step instructions (with photos) for sewing felt dove ornaments, two easy-to-print sizes of the dove templates, and the dove embroidery pattern (plus a reversed version). To print on letter paper, print the instructions to fit the page but the templates to be 100%.

This is a great pattern and idea. I am using it for a Baby Shower I am making the dove and having the dove hold the branch in it's beak, as is in the embroidery design. Each lady at the shower will receive their own dove as a party favor. Lots of work, but lots of fun!

The pdf download was easy. I love the design and choice of two sizes. The instructions and photos how to sew and embroider the doves are clear and concise. Also this pattern can be used to make other birds.
