Sew a set of festive baubles

Join me to learn how to sew a set of unique and beautiful machine-embroidered, beaded baubles to decorate your own tree - and perfect to give as a gift this holiday season. 

You'll learn an easy way to make a richly embellished embroidery using your sewing machine, fabric and lace scraps, snippets, threads, sequins and beads.

You'll also learn how to create an embroidered ribbon for your baubles from just some yarn, embroidery thread and your sewing machine.

I'll show you how to finish your baubles with a beaded edge, and if you make a teardrop bauble, why not add a beaded tassel for a touch of bling? I'll show you how to make three different tassels. 

  • Thank you Izzy for another delightful course. I get so much joy from following your instructions and producing an item of beauty. Every step of the way is so well thought out. In your careful hands I feel encouraged and supported and am left with an enthusiasm to do more and more.

Extra mini-course!

Want to create something else with the decorated fabric you create for Beautiful Baubles? 

I'll show you four different ways to make bespoke book covers, to fit whatever size of book you wish - whether a sketchbook, notebook or photo album. 

This extra mini-course is only available to purchase now, as an add-on with Beautiful Baubles. In future it may be a standalone course but will be at least double the price. 

Together, Beautiful Baubles and Beautiful books offer my best value course yet - 50 lessons, with oodles of techniques and inspiration, for a really affordable price. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How much will it cost?

£38 for Beautiful Baubles; £12 for the extra mini-course Beautiful Book Covers.

What do I need?

You'll need: a colour scheme, a base fabric (dress cotton is ideal), a matching piece of acrylic felt, stitch'n'tear, fabric strips and snippets, narrow ribbons and trims e.g. ric-rac, machine embroidery threads including metallic, a size 90/14 topstitch machine needle, thicker threads and yarns including sparkly novelty yarns, size 8 perlé cotton, size 7 crewel needle, rocailles beads size 9/0, a few bigger beads, quilting clips, toy stuffing, and of course your sewing machine - including a free motion embroidery foot. For the book covers, you will need a lining fabric - and a book to cover!

How long do I have access to the course?

For 6 months - until the end of April; ample time to make some for this year, and then get ahead for next year - and make lots of book covers, too! I'll be available to answer questions and to help you until a few days before Christmas (I need to decorate my own tree!)

Can I sell my baubles?

No! The course material and the baubles you create are for personal use only. You may give them as gifts, but must not sell them.

Will there be a Facebook group for this course?

Yes!

Are the classes weekly or can I have instant access to all the lessons?

The lessons are available immediately on enrolment.

It is a self-paced course which you can work through when it suits you. You could finish a set of baubles in a couple of days, or take your time - up to you.

Just remember that the course material is only available for four months, so make sure you watch everything before the end and download any PDFs you want to keep.

Can I share content, videos or PDFs from the lessons?

As I am sure that you will appreciate it takes a lot of time and energy to prepare online courses. Please do not share any of the content. All the information is for the sole use of the individual subscriber and not to be used in any form without written agreement from Isobel Moore. This includes direct teaching to others. Please do share your work on social media and remember to tag me and give me a mention.

I still have a question, how can I contact you?

I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have. Click my name at the top or bottom of this page to email me.

What if I'm unhappy with my purchase?

I'm sorry but once you are enrolled I can't offer any refunds, but if you are really unhappy please contact me as soon as possible.

Why can't I have access to the course indefinitely?

While the videos may be pre-recorded, I am at the end of an email and available throughout the course to advise and comment on your work right up until a few days before Christmas. I check in several times a day, to reply to everyone's comments individually and promptly. I try my hardest to make sure nobody is left hanging waiting for a response. The course materials will be available for four months in total, so you will still have a couple of months access after the interactive element of the course has finished. This is ample time to make many, many baubles!

How do I sign up?

Right here! When the course is open, there'll be a button right here to sign up.

  • I like having something I've made at the end, and it actually looks good, and is something I've been able to pick up and put down when time allows.

  • I like revisiting skills and being given the confidence to try new things with a lot of support.

  • The videos and commentary were really well done and occasional little imperfections along the way made everything more achievable and less daunting. I also loved seeing other people's work showing alternative colour choices.

IMPORTANT: These baubles are not toys.

The baubles and the tassels have small bead components, so very small children should NOT be allowed to play with them.

A little bit about me

Hello! I'm Izzy Moore and I've been teaching machine embroidery for over 12 years. I love teaching people how to make beautiful things with their sewing machines, and to help open the door to the magical world of machine embroidery.  

I love colour and pattern, and I'm a real magpie - I save the tiniest scraps, and love beads and sequins. These festive baubles combine all my favourite things and some of my favourite embroidery techniques!
