To celebrate the season, we are providing a free embroidery pattern for your next holiday fun project.
These reindeer pictures are made with some simple stitches such as Satin Stitch, Long and Short, French Knot and Outline Stitch.
This product, “Stick’n Stitch” is very useful when you transfer patterns. You can just print out the patterns on one of these sheets or trace the patterns by hand. Then you just stick it on the fabric that you want to use for you stitching.
After you finish all your stitching, just put the fabric in water and the pattern melts off! This product works very well on coarse textured cloth, too.
For a final touch, you can use gold sequin on the reindeer’s collar as a bell.
