Finishing Ideas for our latest free chart

Hi stitchy friends!


You may have seen our latest free design for our "A Year of Christmas Stitching" series. If you haven't seen it or need the link again, you can get the free PDF download here.


We wanted to share some ways that you could finish the design - there are so many things that you could do, so these are just a few of them! (Note that this post contain an affiliate link. Thank you for your support!)


You can attach it to a gift bag - we think it looks great on a wine gift bag, in particular!

You can make it into a pouch to hold yummy treats:

Or add a ribbon (or cording) and you can hang it from your Christmas tree:

Have a book lover in your life? Gift them a book and use the stitching as a bookmark!

There are lots of other ways that you can finish this piece - but we hope this gets your ideas flowing! Once again, if you need the chart, you can find the PDF download on this page. Happy stitching!
