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!

Thanks for visiting

  1. Love them. All I have made this year is Christmas fruit cakes. I think I will have made 8 bigger cakes and 6 little cupcake sized ones by the time I finish tonight. I make a batch and mum eats them or gives them away. I have knitted three scarves which are now in Finland.

    1. Thanks Suze :) Wow fruit cakes yummo and 8 thats amazing.

  2. Wow, these are just gorgeous. My favourite is Santa Claus - so much detail!

    1. Thanks Mel, Santa was a little harder than the others but so cute!
