Vintage Needlework Patterns: Christmas Ornaments
Vintage needlework pattern booklet (published in 1980) featuring 5 Christmas ornaments to stitch.
You trace the designs onto waste canvas then pin or baste it to your chosen washable fabric that doesn't ravel (washable felt would be perfect for this but the booklet suggests polyester suede).
Graphs are includes for all the different decorative canvas work stitches you can use to create the design.
Once the whole design is stitched you soak the fabric in water, carefully remove the waste canvas threads, then add interlining (I don't recommend this step if you're using felt!), cut out the design neatly, and add a thread to hang the ornament.
I'm selling this at a bargain price because the staples holding the booklet together have rusted.
