Christmas Decor Hand Embroidery Pattern
Nothing beats a handmade gift! DIY gifts are bursting with special value and often stay with the recipient for a lifetime. This pattern walks you through creating your own hand embroidery piece which you can treat your loved ones to this Christmas. It is also an awesome way to create affordable Christmas decor for your own home that you can reuse ever year! As a bonus, there are 9 pre-sized Christmas greetings/sayings for you to choose from - Noel, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Season's Greetings, Let it Snow, Hope, Joy, Peace and Merry & Bright.
This pattern utilizes one and two strand embroidery stitches. While the stitches used are easy, the application is quite delicate. I recommend this pattern for intermediate level embroiderers that have confidence in executing small details.

I am a mixed media artist whose work focuses on celebrating the beauty of flora and fauna. My pieces combine delicate embroidered elements with painting, bead work and sequins.
I began offering hand embroidery patterns as a way to share my enjoyment of the process with others. Whether you are a complete beginner or seasoned creator, I hope you find something that inspires you!
