Creche Patterns Suitable for Stitching, II

As with yesterday’s post, this design seems better suited as an embroidery pattern. It was originally designed to be made from piped sugar icing, which seems like it would be such an extremely fragile display for all that work.

Designed by Clare McCanna.

Creche Patterns Suitable for Stitching, I


Today’s post is from another of the vintage Christmas magazines I bought at that great thrift store in Watertown, New York.

The directions are to make these ornaments from the craft-weight aluminum foil, but I think they might actually be more nicely done as embroidery on felt or muslin.

Design by Margreet Akkerman.
