During the holiday season there are a lot of busy work happening. One thing that I like to do to relax is some embroidery stitching. Because it’s Christmas time, I worked up a quick free Christmas Embroidery Designs. Simple print & stitch.
You can pick and choose what to sew it with– you can do redwork, or mix it up with some green and red embroidery thread. Either way, you can sew it into a pillow, tea towel or hoop art when you are all done.
Included in the printable- Snowman, Bird, Santa, and Christmas Tree Embroideries.
The designs are really basic….which is wonderful because they don’t take a lot of time to stitch. The words — Jolly, Merry, Joy and Bright and also embroidered – but could be left out if you desired. If you are looking for a project to start a few young stitchers with this holiday season- these are just right. Very beginner stitcher of any age.
thread– red, green, white, black, gold, brown….or if you choose, you can do this in blue thread only for blue work or red thread only for redwork
6″ X 6″ linen for backing- for these stitcheries I chose a dusty blue linen.
