- Bring both pieces together, around the ornament.
- Using yarn tail and yarn needle, start sewing the two pieces together using a whip stitch or mattress stitch. I used the mattress stitch to seam my pieces together but you can also use the whip stitch if it is easier.
- Start at the top near the ornament cap and stitch all the way around to the other side of the cap, leaving the cap exposed.
- I also whip stitched around the cap to cinch up the top of the ornament cover.
