New Christmas Freebie for you

It is now only 25 days to the BIG Christmas Day.  Whip up a few tea towels or make ornaments with our December Freebie design.521_Freebie-HappyHoHoHoilidayTowel I embroidered Santa holding a mini Christmas tree on a Sage Green striped tea towel.  He only took a couple of hours one night to complete.  A hint for you to speed your embroidery.  Thread a crewel embroidery needle for each of the colors in your design.  You won’t always be pulling the thread out and changing color.  This little cutie would make a great ornament too.  Just do the embroidery on muslin and finish in your favorite way.  FUN!

521_FreebieTransfer-Eze I used our handy dandy Transfer-Eze to print the Freebie Santa and finger press on our Dunroven House tea towel.  The Freebie design can be put on your light box to trace directly onto the fabric – BUT – toweling is a little thicker and rougher than muslin.  Using Transfer-Eze solves the problem.  The smooth Transfer-Eze film put on your towel gives you a nice design line to see and a smooth surface to stitch on.  Try one of the trial 8” x 11” sheets and try it for yourself.   You will be converted.

Have fun making hostess gifts and don’t forget one for you too!
Happy getting ready for the big day and all the celebrations.

  4. I just found you (via Susan at The Thread and I)!!! Am so happy I did - I even just placed an introductory order with you. Can't wait to get my Transfer-Eze and try it out. Thank you so much for ALL the free patterns. What really drew me to your site was your free Holiday Dove that Susan stitched and showed on her blog. Thanks a bunch! I will be following your blog from now on. HUGS... and stitches
