Cut out 2 pieces. Remember to flip the pattern so that the” tooled leather” is on the correct side for the front and back of the ornament.
I did the same with the brand. I made a free hand pattern. I used the lighter brown for this part.
I placed the boots wrong sides together and top stitched around the edges with my machine. Leaving the the top of the boot open to stuff with batting.
After I filled it I placed a piece of brown ribbon(for the hanger) in the top and sewed it closed. Then I took the brand and glued is securely with fabric glue. The other ornament I am hand stitching on the brand. This brand was too narrow and I thought the stitching might be distracting.
I am making a few other ones in various shapes, belt buckles, stars, etc for presents. I think that stitching in turquoise might be kinda cute too. The possibilities are endless. Id love to hear from you if you end up making a similar item or have a great idea for this WONDERFUL felt.
