Festive Decor In Stitches

It's that time of year when crafty fingers start twitching to create something for Christmas
So here are some ideas for festive decor using my embroidery patterns
First we have Festive Fun which I have used to make these cute hangy thingys for your tree, door handles or where ever your home needs a bit of festive cheer

Quick and easy to stitch they are made from scraps of spare fabric and ribbon filled with toy filling

Festive Fun Two continues the stitchy theme with a set of cute little designs including an angel and snowman seen here stitched onto a cushion, a doorhanger and a Redwork patchwork block

Another way to use embroidery as part of your Christmas decor is to leave your stitching in the hoop and use it as a piece of wall art as I have done with Rockin Robin and the curvy reindeer from Wishing On A Star

So go on - have a go
