Handmade Christmas - Cross stitch ornaments
Hands up if you love receiving handmade gifts ? I do, and I love making them and giving to family and friends. Ornaments are always a nice small thing to create and give at this time of this year and there are so many you can hand make.
I made a few of these Embroidery hoop ornaments last year and they were popular so I decided to make more this year. You can pick up the tiny embroidery hoops quite cheap as well as some Aida cloth or you could just use calico.
I picked a few designs from my Christmas cross stitch collection and got busy.
As they are only tiny and I didn't pick designs that were too complicated, they didn't take that long to make, one night in front of the TV sometimes two for each hoop.
I have a few more posts to come in my handmade Christmas so keep a watch out for the next one!
