Personalized Christmas Tags & Ornaments with FREE Instructions & Embroidery Designs - Part 2

Embroidered Christmas ornaments make decorating the tree more special - project by Kristie J Smith

Embroidered Christmas ornaments are really easy to create with Hatch Embroidery software and can be personalized by adding some lettering or monograms, so everyone in the family can have their own ornament on the tree!

In this blog article we take you STEP BY STEP and show you how to make the cute Snowman ornament with your embroidery machine.

At the end of this article you can request a download link to a FREE TUTORIAL along with BONUS DESIGNS which will help you learn how to create your perfect Christmas ornaments. Although the instructions in the tutorial are for the Snowman embroidery design, we are also giving you a couple of other free designs that you can customize to your own taste.

You will see just how easy it is to digitize your own design with Hatch Embroidery Digitizer or use one of the free designs and add some lettering or a monogram to it with Hatch Embroidery Customizer!

Supplies Needed

  • Embroidery machine and needles
  • Hatch Embroidery Digitizer software 
  • Felt (2 sheets/pieces per design)
  • Heavy cut-away stabilizer
  • Assorted embroidery threads
  • Ribbon to tie or hang ornaments
  • Embroidery hoop to fit design

Software Requirements

The software requirement for this project is Hatch Embroidery Digitizer, the highest level of the software as you will be doing manual digitizing to complete the designs.

Skill Level Required

We have ranked this as intermediate, but the skill level of the digitizing would be appropriate for a beginner digitizer with basic digitizing knowledge.

Features & Techniques Used

Basic digitizing tools such as drawing and aligning shapes, changing colors, mirror-copying, adding a button hole and resequencing the design.

Let's Embroider!

After you have all your supplies ready, you will need to download the instructions we included with this project. You will also download the FREE embroidery designs that you can stitch straight out without digitizing. Click here to go to the end of this article and request a download link. You can also digitize your own Christmas ornament designs if you feel adventurous or experienced enough.

I am very frustrated. I had purchased True Sizer Pro in May of 2016 and yet I cannot seem to be able to open ANY of the EMB designs that I download. Every time I try to open them I get a message saying they were created in a newer version. I have checked repeatedly with my software and it says there are no updates. I have asked for help from support and was just given a link to the pdf help pages! then was told the ticket was now closed! How is this considered support? Extremely frustrated.

ANSWER: Apologies you didn't receive the response. Yes TrueSizer Pro DOES work with Hatch. You need to save your files as an emb3 file and not the newer emb3.5 file in order to open it in TrueSizer.

I’d like to find out more? I’d love to find out some additional information. I think you should write something about How to Digitize for Embroidery.
