In our October issue you'll find a bumper set of festive motifs guaranteed to get you in the mood for some seasonal stitching. From stars to snowflakes and candy canes, there's something for every taste level.
Make a start on your festive preparations by stitching these little motifs in the evenings, on the train or even in your lunch hour!
If you can make time to stitch just one motif each week in the run up to December, then you'll have enough to decorate a wreath by the time advent starts.
To get you started, here's some more festive motifs to download - for FREE!
You'll find the rest of the designs on pages 17-24 of our October issue, on sale 3rd October. Get inventive and let us know what you do with yours...
These motifs are so versitile, you could make almost anything with them!
We stitched most of ours onto plastic canvas so they'd be strong enough to decorate our shop-bought wreath, but how about stitching them onto felt or evenweave instead? You could make a Christmas recipe book cover, a padded decoration or a felt stocking - just like we have!
Find all the charts and instructions in our October issue 258 - on sale until 30th October.
