There are so many fun ornaments you can buy in the store, but a homemade holiday touch always makes things so much better in my opinion. When I was a child, my brother and I used to get an ornament every year that was just ours and I looked forward to placing each year’s ornament on the tree in the following years. Sometimes those ornaments were handmade and I loved these ones since I could just feel the love put into them. When most people think of homemade ornaments, they think of a more crafty kind made with salt dough or Popsicle sticks, however, there are some really beautiful ones you can make right on your sewing machine! Here are 10 free ornament sewing patterns to inspire you this Christmas.
