I had a friend who worked on an intricate holiday embroidery pattern each year. She would bring it out after her decorations were up and do handwork during the season. When the tree came down, the project was stored away as well. When it was actually done, we were both kind of sad because it had been so nice to revisit it each year. I am gifting her this pattern this year!
The embroidery center panel measures 19″ x 16″ and should keep her busy through several holidays. To make it extra special, I will piece the surrounding blocks that turn it into a 56 1/2″ throw. What a great way to combine both of our talents and create more memories!
The pattern is due to arrive in December, so why not order yours now and start your own tradition???
These gnomes by Stacy West of Buttermilk Basin are so darn cute, your customers won’t be able to resist giving wool a try.
This is just a sampling of her ornaments. There are dozens to choose from – berries to Halloween. Why not kit some up for a make it/take it and invite your customers to come in and stitch for awhile. Hot chocolate and a visit with friends at your shop may be the highlight of the season!
In her own words, this baby-faced teddy bear was specifically designed for you to sew lovely keepsakes.
With an adorable heart-shaped nose, cute upturned muzzle, arms and legs sewn into seams (for easy construction), large flat spaces for embroidery and a chubby little bottom (for extra “hugginess”) this is a perfect pattern for a keepsake bear! Create a cherished keepsake as a reminder of your baby’s first years, to mark a special occasion or milestone, to commemorate a lost loved one and bring comfort when words aren’t enough… or simply sew a keepsake bear just for YOU!
Gunther and Gretchen are just in time to satisfy everyone’s craving for gnomes.
