'The Night Before Christmas' large embroidery template
'The Night before Christmas' is a large festive oval embroidery template.
This design is inspired by a small collage and painting that I made many moons ago for a Christmas card when I opened my first shop in 2007.
This little collage has stayed with me and is now hanging in my kitchen here in East London and thus has now inspired this festive design.
The illustrations are brought together into one large drawing that is housed in an oval border of cross stitches.
One of my signature houses is the centre of this design which is then surrounded by festive trees, a moon, stars and wonderful gifts under the trees.
The words "The night before Christmas and all lay still" run through the embroidery.
You can enjoy filling in my hand drawn text that fills the bow and runs through the main design, in you chosen thread colours.
I have hand screen printed my design onto this soft cotton fabric ready for you to hand embroider using your favourite stitches and enjoy adding appliqué to areas using your own favourite fabrics.
Take inspiration from my colour choices as you start your own personal journey in stitch and fabric.
Once complete this print can be framed, I would suggest in a large box frame and placed in your home or made into a wall hanging and brought out year after year at Christmas, advent and holiday season.Enjoy also making it as a gift for a beloved friend or family member.
Print measures: 40 cm x 30 cm.
