Not a Creature Was Stirring: Christmas Embroidery

Want to embroider the flora and fauna of the Christmas season? Read on!

A blanket of new-fallen snow. The smell of a fresh-cut spruce. A glint of red sitting in a tree. Pretty poinsettias. All of these wonderful Christmas memories can be stitched on your embroidery machine.


Robins and cardinals are favorite birds of the season. The quick-stitch Christmas Robin from Ace Points Embroidery would  be beautiful stitched in a throw or wall hanging or popped in a frame.

The regal Retro Cardinal from Blue Stitch Sky makes the perfect ornament or gift tag. Perhaps best of all, the felt requires no finishing.

Holly & Poinsettias

A design set like Christmas Embellishments from All Sorts of Embroidery makes elegant table linens. Stitch scrolls in metallic gold for a pop of sparkle.

This gorgeous 3D Poinsettia Wreath from Embroider Shoppe would be just as lovely as a table center piece as it would be hanging on an entry door. It stitches up on organza for delicate layers of petals and leaves and easy finishing.

Another lovely wall hanging, the Poinsettia Mini Quilt from Oma’s Place is embroidered and quilted in the hoop. Blocks are then assembled by machine.

Christmas Trees & Ornaments

The Romantic Crazy Quilt Christmas Tree from Graceful Embroidery looks very elegant stitched on silk dupioni.

Of course, trees are even better when decorated with pretty ornaments. FSL Snowflakes from Kreations by Kara are stitched in the hoop on water-soluble stabilizer. Once they are rinsed, scenic snowflake ornaments remain.

Imagine the joy these 3D Christmas Candy Cane Holders from Ananda’s Divine Designs will bring to believers of all ages. Felt makes them so easy to make because there is no edge finishing.
