  1. Prepare Your Clip Art:

    Start by collecting a variety of clip art that inspires you. In a photo editing application of your choice, arrange your clip art on an 11.69-inch width background. Each image should be about 3 inches in height, spaced 1 to 2 inches apart. Save the composition as a PNG file, ensuring that the background is transparent.

  3. Laminate Your Fabric:

    Take the Brother laminate vinyl and iron it onto the entire piece of fabric. Follow instructions for pressing temperature and time to ensure that the laminate bonds to the fabric. Then, carefully cut out each individual image, leaving approximately a 0.5-inch seam allowance around the edges.

  4. Glue the Backside:

    Apply fabric glue to the backside, focusing on the outer edge of the fabric. Do not apply glue to the top side. Adhere your printed fabric to the canvas fabric. Allow this to dry for about an hour.

  5. Fill with Cotton:

    Using the opening at the top of the pocket you've created, fill it with cotton filling to give your ornaments their plush appearance.

  6. Add a Ribbon Hanger:

    Take about 6 inches of ribbon, fold it in half, and glue the ends together to create a loop. Place the glued edge within the opening at the top of your ornament and glue it in place. Use fabric clips to hold the ribbon in place, and allow it to dry for about an hour.

  7. Final Touch:

    Your ornaments are almost complete. You can leave the edges of the fabric as they are, allowing them to naturally distress over time. Alternatively, you can use pinking shears to create a fun design around the edges for an extra decorative touch.
