Hi everyone, I hope you all are having a good week! My grand plans of finishing the maple leaf quilt over the weekend didn't pan out as I'd hoped because I couldn't get hold of any cotton batting, so instead I had some time to dream up new ideas and play with more Christmas fabrics!
I had an idea for a cute and kitschy reindeer embroidery after receiving this sweet little Cath Kidston Christmas gift guide through my letterbox, I loved the idea of a vintage style Rudolph with a bow on!!
So I got my sketchbook out and started drawing, eventually it turned into this! Stitching him up was so fun! I forgot how much I enjoyed embroidery, and it's a perfect project to get into the festive spirit, while watching Christmas tv!
You can purchase the PDF Rudolph the reindeer embroidery pattern in my etsy shop. He's only $2.99 / £1.93 so it hopefully won't break the bank! I have also included my floss colour codes so you can make one just like mine :)
I thought the reindeer pattern was calling out to be a pillow, of course ;) so after embroidering the design on an 11" piece of white cotton, I trimmed it down, and added border strips measuring 4" wide. Then cut the backing panels, and stitched all the way round the edge! It's a super quick project and could be perfect for gift giving.
Enjoy! Jessie, xo
