DIY Sunday – Christmas Cards

Christmas cards :: my blue&white kitchen

To make these Christmas cards you need:

  • an embroidery needle
  • golden and/or silver embroidery thread
  • card stock in different colors (fold it in half length-wise)
  • a ruler
  • a pencil

With the pencil and the help of a ruler, draw the pattern you want to stitch. You can stitch almost any pattern imaginable. Later on today, I'm going to try to stitch a himmeli, a traditional Finnish Christmas mobile, pattern. With the needle, poke holes into the paper – this makes it much easier to sew through the paper. Knot your thread and start stitching! Don't forget to write your holiday greetings :)
