This is the first of three free Christmas samplers just in time for you to stitch for Christmas.
Use them framed or put them in a quilt or cushion of your own design.
The first Sampler has a colour chart for stitching in colour – but you can always stitch it in red only, and DMC 304 or Cosmo 241A are good reds to use, or a variegated red would work wonders.
Also, I’ve given the instructions for making “patches” for this sampler- but you can also just trace the design onto one piece of background fabric and stitch.
There are instructions on how to stitch the sampler- and the Christmas design to trace onto your background fabric.
Fabric for the background should be slightly larger than needed, and cut to the size you like when the stitching is finished.
It’s a good idea to press light, fusible, woven interfacing to the back of the background piece before stitching.

The two buttons are optional. The Angel goes on top of the “t” in “Christmas” and the teddy goes next to the word “Family”.
Both buttons can be bought from CheraBella Buttons.
