Embroidered gift tags that double as Christmas ornaments are a great way to add an extra touch to a special gift. They can be personalized with names or simply sewn for decoration. These customized tags are super quick and simple to create with Hatch Embroidery software.

You will find a button at the end of this article to access your FREE TUTORIAL along with BONUS DESIGNS which will help you learn how to create your perfect Christmas tags. The instructions in the tutorial are for the Christmas Ball embroidery design, but 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 designs with Hatch Embroidery Digitizer or use one of the free designs and add some lettering or a monogram to it with Hatch Embroidery Personalizer!

  • Heavy cut-away stabilizer
  • Assorted embroidery threads
