Embroidery Hoop Ornaments - Presents

Hi, hi! I'm so excited to share these cute little hoop ornaments. They make the perfect gifts or quick and easy holiday project.

I designed this 3" hoop ornament pattern as part of the celebration of Hush Hush 2, a collaborative collection of low volume prints from Riley Blake Designs. Twenty-one designers, including myself, created a low volume print each! For this collection, I designed a cute print confetti print. it's so fun and sweet and makes the perfect background print!

But back to the hoop ornament! Here's how to make your own - 


Quick tip: I highly recommend starching your fabric before cutting it for this project. It'll make handling the teeny tiny pieces much easier while sewing. 

  • Background Fabric: Assorted pieces of a low volume fabric - cut:
    • [x2] 1" x 7/8"
    • [x1] 1" x 1 1/2"
    • [x2] 2 1/4" x 1 1/2"
    • [x2] 1 5/8" x 4 1/2"
  • Gift Fabric: Scrap roughly 3" x 3"- cut:
    • [x2] 1 1/4" x 2"
  • Ribbon Fabric: Scrap roughly 2" x 2" - cut:
    • [x1] 3/4" x 2"
    • [x2] 1" x 1"
  • [x1] 3″ embroidery hoop
  • Fabric Glue
  • Felt and ribbon, optional


  1. Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of the 1" x 1" ribbon fabric squares. Place one on the bottom left corner of one of the 1 1/2" x 2" background. Sew on the marked line, trim 1/4″ away from the seam, and press. Repeat with the second 1" x 1" square on the right side of the background piece. 
  2. Sew the two 1 1/4" x 2" gift fabric rectangles to either side of the 3/4" x 2" ribbon rectangle. Press seams open.
  3. Sew units from step one and step two together to make the gift.
  4. Sew the two 2 1/4" x 1 1/2" background pieces to the top and bottom of the gift.
  5. Sew the two 1 5/8" x 4 1/2" pieces to the left and right of the unit from step 4. 
  6. Center and insert the block into the embroidery hoop. Tighten.
  7. Trim the excess fabric from the back of the embroidery hoop.
  8. With the fabric glue, glue down and secure loose fabric on the back of the embroidery hoop.
  9. If you desire, trace the embroidery hoop on a piece of felt, and apply the felt circles on the back of the embroidery hoops, using the fabric glue to secure.
  10. Tie ribbon to the top of the embroidery hoops.
