12 Weeks of Christmas Ornaments Challenge 2021 Week 9: The Black Tie Pattern

So we've only got a few weeks left. How are your ornaments coming along?

(Even if you haven't kept up, I hope you're having fun with this.)

For Week 9, we're bringing another of our past CLUB patterns out of the vault!

This week, we're doing the Black Tie Pattern.

Just like many of our Club Patterns, we only did this pattern ONCE (way back in September 2018). It has not been available outside the Club.

(It's kind of crazy how many patterns we have that we make once, and then seem to disappear amongst all the newer patterns! I'm excited to see your versions of this pattern this week.)

IMPORTANT! If you were an Ornament Girl during September 2018, DO NOT BUY THIS. You have automatic access! Look in your Pattern Library, under the 'Classic Patterns' tab. (You may need to log out, and then log back in again.)

BUT! If you DON'T yet own this pattern, now's your chance to own this previously club-only pattern! You can grab it HERE.

Your turn!

Your challenge is.... to make your own Black Tie Ornament using your 3 chosen fabrics.... you can arrange your fabrics like I have above, or better yet, mix it up!

Remember, if you don't know how to make the Black Tie Pattern, you can get the pattern & video combo, right HERE.

Then, show me what you've got by posting it on Instagram using the hashtag #OrnamentGirlsChallenge so we can all see it!

(And, if you're an Ornament Girls Club Member, please post it in our private FB group!)

I'll see ya in a week, with Challenge Pattern #10.

Happy Ornament-ing!

Staci Ann

p.s. If you bought your foam ahead of time based on the Supply List I gave you, this week uses a 5-Lined Ball. But, don't worry if you don't have a pre-lined ball... this one can either be done without lines, or you can draw your own.)

p.p.s. Here are the OG Team's Black Tie Ornaments:

    The link to buy the pattern within the description above is dead. I will come back later to check again. Thank you!

      Hi there.. the links are now working. Sorry about that!

    Yes, I am unable to access the ebook also. And it is not listed in my pattern library

      Hi Patti… Will you try refreshing your Pattern Library now? I had a technical issue… I’ve fixed it now. I’m sorry about that!

    Thanks, not sure if anyone else has this issue, but I can access it through my email confirmation.

    I am wondering how people know ahead of time the ornament each week. It seems you have to be in the know.

      Hi there, I’m not actually sure how people would know. Unless you mean when we post it late the night before on occasion? But, no worries because every Monday you will be notified via email and it’s posted on the blog, too. Thanks!

      Late Sunday night I check the pattern library to see if any have gone on sale. That is how I figured out this weeks

    Was there an email this Monday morning? I didn’t receive the usual notice and finally came to the blog to see what this week’s pattern would be.

    • Janelle - Ornament Girl Support on November 23, 2021 at 12:15 pm

      Hi Diane, yes there was an email. I’m sorry you didn’t receive it. Will you check your spam folder? And if it isn’t there, can you email us about this? http://www.ornamentgirls.com/contact Thank you!
