Embroider christmas card free instructions for beginner

Advent Calendar 2022 ‒ the fifth door shows you another easy Christmas project. Let’s embroider a Christmas card, yes a special one, in a colorful style. Why did I choose for colors? I looked at the new models of sewing machines, the Kaffe Fassett edition. I have been admiring the colorfull projects and designs from Kaffe Fassett since 30 years, I think.  Take a quick look at the BERNINA site to discover all about the Kaffe Fassett models.

So let’s embroider Christmas cards

Hoop both layers of stabilizer. If you use a lightweight paper, add an extra layer of standard printer sheet. These lines will be embroidered.Advent Calendar 2022 ‒ the fifth door

Start with the embroidery thread in the color you want to take for the first triangle. Embroider the first rectangle. It helps to position your paper. 

The second line sews the paper to the stabilizer. Then embroider the rectangles one by one. At last you will take the brown color for the trunk of the Christmas tree. Change spool thread to the color you wish to take for the frame. Add the second sheet of checkered paper to the back of your project (use temporary adhesive spray to fix it). Embroidery line 10 sews it to the back of your work.

The last step is to embroider the frame to the card.

Finish the Christmas card

Take the project out of the hoop. Cut away the leftover stabilizer and paper with the rotary cutter, as close as you can to the ouline rectangles.
