When you get on the website type in Baby Jesus ornament in the finder area
Cut out all the pieces. Two blue ovals, two white blankets and one head per ornament.
Glue one part of the blanket on the blue felt using the Tacky glue.
Glue the second part of the blanket onto the blue felt.
Tacky glue can be purchased at any craft or fabric store.
Next glue the head onto the top of the blue oval.
Separate a few pieces of the black thread and use a thin needle to sew the black seed beads onto the face.
Using the white thread and a running stitch sew the white felt blanket onto the light blue oval.
Sew the face with a running stitch and two strands of the flesh thread.
On the back piece of the blue felt sew "baby Jesus" in black thread. I always write it with a black marker and sew over it with thread.
Sew the top piece and bottom piece together with a blanket stitch with blue thread.
I decided to add a smile to the face of the ornament with some black thread and a tight running stitch.
Before sewing the ornament shut add a few cotton balls or some batting and sew a little loop for hanging.
