A free Christmas embroidery pattern for you.

It's no secret that I love the Peanuts comic strip, and the Charlie Brown holiday specials are required viewing every year. :)

Last year, I embroidered the poor little Charlie Brown Christmas tree. I sold the original piece in my Etsy shop, but since I had saved the pattern I sketched out, I thought I'd share it with you guys.




The pattern is really simple to stitch! I used backstitch, satin stitch, long/short, and straight stitches, and there are DMC color suggestions in the pattern.

It's a quirky little embroidery that you can quickly stitch up for yourself or as a gift for a special blockhead in your life. :) You can download the free pattern here.

Until next time,

  2. There is one suggestion, If your purpose is to work up a display piece, then of course, much more planning has to go into the sampler before you even start stitching. But if you just want to learn and to have some fun with various embroidery stitches or threads, then you can pretty much just launch right in with a blank piece of fabric and whatever threads you have on hand that will be best strategy..
