I know it's a little early to discuss Christmas, but I wanted to share some embroidery patterns with you now so that you have time to use them. I thought my drawings were straight and easy to follow, but after I scanned them I saw a lot of crooked lines, so please don't curse me if you decide to try one. I like simple embroidery designs that I can actually finish, so feel free to add any fancy stitching you think would look good. I would love to see your finished product - I haven't had time to stitch these and want to see how they turn out.
The first set; sugar plum fairies:
I had trouble stitching this nisse/tomte; I couldn't get the eye right and tried so many times a hole was wearing in the fabric. I was ready to stitch a pirate patch over her eye. The second set are various nisse/tomtes/gnomes; the bottom pattern may be difficult to embroider because the legs and arms may be too small, but you could enlarge it. Let me know what you think of these - how I could change them so they are easier/fancier to stitch.
