Bacon Ornament Tutorial


Posted by Serena on Saturday, December 11th, 2010 Bacon Ornament Tutorial BaconOrnWell, after putting them in my app, I realized I wanted some real-life bacon Christmas ornaments! So, After a few attempts, I came up with a way to make them resemble bacon while making them nice enough to hang on the tree! You can make multiple decorations for your tree, or make one as a Christmas gift to give to a bacon-loving friend! It makes a finished piece about 5 x 2″ with a 3.5″ ribbon to hang it. Materials


  • Red Felt
  • Color 2 Felt (White, Beige or Pink)
  • Red Thread
  • Thread that matches Color 2
  • Wire (about 18″ per decoration)
  • Ribbon (8″ per ornament)
  • Print out of this pattern
Tools


  • Pins
  • Needle
  • Scissors
Optional:


  • Sewing Machine
  • Googly Eyes
  • Black Beads (for eyes)
  • Black Felt (for mouth)
  • Glue
  • Fiber Batting
  • Liquid Smoke (to give it a nice bacony smell)
Instructions


  1. Bacon Ornament Tutorial BaconStep1Cut out the six pieces of felt. The red pieces of felt should be about 2.5 inches x 5 or 6 inches. You can use this pattern, or improvise with your own shapes.
    Make sure the two red pieces of felt match in shape so that they can be stitched back together.)Bacon Ornament Tutorial BaconStep1b
  2. Bacon Ornament Tutorial BaconStep2Using Pins to hold them in place, stitch the Color 2 pieces onto the red felt using a overcast stitch. I made the stitch very wide to add to the ripply look of bacon. (Is it weird that I’m getting hungry now?)
    Remember to stitch on the right sides of the felt! The pieces should look mirrored after they are stitched.Bacon Ornament Tutorial BaconStep2b
  3. Bacon Ornament Tutorial BaconStep3Fold your ribbon in half and sandwich it between the stitched pieces of felt. The sides with the stitched designs (the ‘right sides’) should be facing inward. Pin them together.
    Make sure to leave the ribbon sticking out a bit to make sure it’s caught by the stitching.Bacon Ornament Tutorial BaconStep3b
  4. Bacon Ornament Tutorial BaconStep4Stitch the sides and top, and leave the bottom open. Make sure to stitch right through the green ribbon.
    Be sure to backstitch the seams so they don’t unravel while you turn it inside out!
  5. Bacon Ornament Tutorial BaconStep5Turn the piece inside out by pulling the ribbon through the bottom.
    Try not to stress the opening too much when you turn it inside out.
  6. Bacon Ornament Tutorial BaconStep6Create a rectangle of wire that will fit inside. Make it big enough to stay at the edges.
    You can put a bit of cotton batting in to puff the piece a little. If you want to give the ornament a bacon-y (“baconish”? “bacon-like”?) scent, put a drop of liquid smoke on the batting and roll it around to distribute it through the fiber before putting it inside.
    Make sure the wire is twisted and tucked around itself so that it can’t poke or scratch anyone.
  7. Tuck in the bottom seam and use a ladder stitch to close it. (Unfortunately I didn’t get a picture of this step, but here’s what it looks like with the Boo Plush). Here’s some directions on how to do a ladder stitch: http://www.mimidolls.com/DCC-Techniques/ladder/ladder.htm
  8. Bend and fold the wire and crumple the bacon a bit to give the edges a nice curl.
  9. Bacon Ornament Tutorial FinishedBaconAll done! If you like, add googly eyes black beads for eyes or ribbon to decorate it a little more.
Well, that’s it! Please feel free to post any comments or questions about this! And I love to see finished pieces! And if you’d like to support my blogging, download one of my iPhone Apps if you have an iPhone.Bacon Ornament Tutorial BaconCartoon

I don't. I thought it was a bit of fun and that folk like Billy might find it amusing...

I think by some afficionados, a bit of bloom on the porcine delights adds something to the effect. I was thinking of it, but with the smokey flavor added, the dogs would worry my tree more so than they do already!!
