Vintage Truck and Camper Embroidery Pattern Christmas pillow Ornament
I have such fond memories of traveling in a very small vintage trailer behind a station wagon! At Christmas time my mother turned our little traveling abode into something magical and sparkly for the Christmas Holidays! A small but real tree decorated in lights, a Christmas wreath on the door, little ornaments that twinkled when the lights hit them a certain way. I can close my eyes and see this wonderful scene every time I think about it.
I used plain white cotton for the design back, and Christmas color scraps of fabric to make the little pillow ornament with. Measures 6" x 9" when pillow is completed.
This camper and truck are heading to friends and family for the Holidays. The tree is freshly cut, and covered with a light dusting of snow. The camper has little twinkle lights, a wreath and a small Christmas tree inside, ready for the festivities. When creating this little pattern, I knew it represented something wonderful for me. It is very simple to stitch. A backstitch which is a basic and very elementary stitch, that anyone could do. There are easy directions with pictures showing each step. Once the stitching is completed, the design is sewn into a very small pillow/ornament. Lace, rick rack, buttons and bows are added to complete the pillow. It is perfect for Christmas and perfect for additional decorating in a little nook or cranny.
I just loved making this and hope you enjoy stitching it. It is small and can be completed in a short amount of time. That was a key element for me in making this design. I wanted it to be fun and enjoyable and something that could be completed and added to the Holiday decor.

I am a professional pattern designer, seamstress and miniature maker. As a little girl my parents gave me little toys and sewing projects to keep me quiet in church! Those interests turned into skills, and in my later life turned into a wonderful thriving business! My goal in making patterns is to make them as simple as possible, while using the prettiest fabric. Putting the two together hopefully results in a wonderful finished product or item!
