Embroidered Snowflake Ornaments
Intermediate | 53 min 58 sec
Need a sweet little project to stitch up over a steaming cup of cocoa? Rebecca Ringquist has the perfect thing! Her newest embroidery sampler includes four snowflake panels to be embroidered by hand and then when complete, you can sew them into four festive holiday ornaments, perhaps with customized messages of love on the back. Rebecca will demonstrate how to set yourself up for success, including how to transfer the design from a PDF. Then you can stitch along with her using the back stitch, filled back stitch, chain stitch and couching, or treat the sampler like a coloring book and choose your own stitches to suit your fancy. Top it off with a sequin for some extra sparkle.
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • Snowflakes Holiday Ornament Sampler and PDF can be purchased from dropclothsamplers.com
  • Embroidery floss, Perle Cotton, size 8
  • Embroidery needles - Rebecca uses milliner needles, size 3 or 4
  • Backing fabric: cotton / linen, or other woven / non-stretchy fabric
  • Fusible web, such as ShapeFlex to reinforce embroidery
  • Embroidery hoop, 4 to 6-inches
  • Rubber fingers or thimbles

  • Iron and ironing surface
  • Sulky Fabri-Solvy Soluble Stabilizer
  • Tracing paper
  • Permanent pen for transfer
  • Pincushion or needlebook
  • Optional: beeswax for threading needles
  • Optional: sequins and beads
  • Shop small! Find your supplies at Dropcloth Samplers or Snuggly Monkey
