It’s that time of the year again! That time when summer ends and we begin to think about Christmas – there I said it out loud.
As you know very well, embroidery projects can be a little bit time-consuming. That is why it is so important to start early and not at the last minute. I’m totally guilty of getting started way too late and getting overwhelmed in December with finishing gifts for Christmas.
Below you will find a list of Christmas embroidery patterns to help getting the Christmas Crafting spirit started. It may or may not help you decide on what you want to craft this year. Maybe it will make deciding even worse because there is so much to choose from!
