Free Christmas Cross Stitch Chart: A Treat from the North Pole
Hi stitchy friends!
We hope your stitching plans for February are off to a good start! Today we're sharing February's free cross stitch chart from our "A Year of Christmas Stitching" series. If you aren't familiar with this - we post one free chart (as a downloadable PDF) for every month of the year - and every chart is Christmas (or winter) themed. This way, you can stitch for the holiday season with us all year long! It's a fun way to spread the "holiday cheer" throughout the entire year!
If you missed January's free cross stitch chart - you can find it here. You may also want to browse through our other free charts under the "Cross Stitch" tab as well. Any who... on to February's free cross stitch chart - here it is:
"A Little Treat from the North Pole". The free PDF download can be found at the bottom of this page. Scroll on down to get your free chart!
This stitching can be turned into a little pouch to put small treats into - like candy canes, rolos, or a milky way bar. Such a cute way to share yummy treats with family members or friends during the holidays! Or, you could make this into a little ornament pouch for the tree... I imagine that if you left it out, Santa's elves might come during the night to fill it up with some goodies! :)
Or, if you're looking to give an "adult" treat - you could attach this stitching to a wine bottle gift bag to jazz up a gift for friends.
I had grand plans to have this piece stitched and finished for early February so that I could share the finished piece with you, but life got in the way! So stay tuned for another blog post soon - where we show you what this stitched chart will look like as a finished piece!
The nice thing about this chart is that you can easily swap out other colours if you don't have the exact threads we note in the chart. For example - for the pale celery green coloured shadow behind the "NORTH POLE" text, you could use 772 or 369 - which are both pale greens. Or, if you don't have greens, a pale grey would work as well. Or a red, or something else... you get the point. It's easy to swap out colours to personalize this piece.
For stitching this, I used a bundle pack of threads, which I think works really well for small projects like this. (Note this is an affiliate link - thank you for your support!). This option worked well for me because I can choose from lots of thread colours without having to worry about dipping into the DMC threads that I will need for bigger projects.
Anyway, that's all for now! We hope you enjoy stitching this piece! Download your free chart below. Happy stitching everyone!
