An Advent Calendar of Motifs and Gingerbread Houses
  • You'll need to get a little creative in planning out an Advent Calendar to take advantage of these super-cute little Holiday motifs! I'd choose Gingerbread colored fabric by Picture This Plus... I'm not sure if I'd make these on the fronts of tiny treat pockets or what, but all the designs are around 20 x 20 or 25 each - nice petite little pieces, coded for DMC. Some would be cute ornaments as well.

  • The Gingerbread Houses are shown on a gray background. Each measures about 50 stitches high, and vary in width. Coded for DMC, you could add metallics, opalescents and beads all over on these! Think about a gingerbread village of individual stand-up blocks too!

This is a neat pattern. It is a medley of antique sewing accessories and tools, all stitched with 26 various shades of DMC floss. The charts in here are huge, and all in color. You can stitch each 'thing' individually or do the entire medley, which measures 117 x 141 - so only 7 x 9 on 32ct!

It looks a lot bigger than that, so the moral of this story is PIN CUSHIONS AND LITTLE SEWING CASES! That tape measure is about 15 x 60 the button card is only 34 x 34, the safety pin is only 10 x 30... these are enchanting little what-nots! Get the chart, and then figure out what you want to do with all the designs... this is a 'must have!'

Lavender's Sprig
This is a pretty medley of small designs that would make a lovely collection of individual pin cushions.

The whole picture is 140 x 140 - so think you could break it up pretty easily into smaller sections. 26 shades of DMC floss called for.

159 x 190 - A 10-inch circle of cute mini-motifs coded for DMC, this begs for metallics, beads, and maybe some frizzies for the spider legs!

By Les Petites Croix De Lucie, presented as a pair of charts - one chart has the backstitching lines printed in color, for clarity.

Oh we love these two designs by Les Petites Croix de Lucie... she calls them her "Vintage Collection." Absolutely charming, she has great shading in these, which makes them all the harder to stitch!
The girl (108 x 140) has 26 different shades of DMC, then blended needles of 8 more colors, the backstitch is all done all over the place - not following the horizontal and vertical chart lines.
Santa (108 x 140) has 32 shades and only 6 blended needle colors!

So... you either like doing that, or hate it, but wow, either way, the designs are awesome! (You could always Decopage the cover pics on something! That is REALLY CHEATING, but it's fun to think about!)
