Step 1:

Cut 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.

Step 2:

Using 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

Step 3:

Fold 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.

Step 4:

Stitch 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!

Step 5:

Turn 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.

That's cute! Before the picture popped up I had visions of a piece of bacon hanging on the tree, or maybe a gold-plated piece of bacon. Bacon lovers would love having it on their tree.
