Although not strictly a Christmas edition, the new issue of The Stitch and Thimble does give a distinctive nod towards the upcoming festive season – with gift possibilities, wrapping ideas and potential stocking fillers.
For the little ones in the family, there’s an heirloom toy. A soft baby ball made up of pentagons, some of which are embroidered. No-sew fridge magnets can be customised to create a gift for absolutely anyone, as can the quick and easy, petite key fobs that make for great stocking fillers. And then wrap it up with a luxurious embroidered ribbon.
The 10th edition is rounded off with a star-stitched sampler and four additional templates for you to use at will, hopefully to create something that adds sparkle to your Christmas.
There’s still plenty of time for stitching before the festive frenzy hits in earnest, so head over to my online shop for your copy of The Stitch and Thimble : 10.
