Ideas for Christmas Cards & Christmas Gifts.

Now it is time to get sewing the Holiday gifts, I guess that you might have started! I wanted to share a few sewing ideas that we are working on in Huskvarna. Especially since it’s not only me, doing sewing projects, we are several. I thought you might want to see what we are sewing!

Anders, who works in our company as a Systems Engineer, is going to sew sweatshirts and trousers for his two boys, age 4 and 2. Here is a picture of him drawing the patterns.  Next week you will be able to see more of the development of this project.

I have embroidered a Christmas Card. Here is the card that I will send to my friends.

I have used the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Design Collection # 163, “Dimensional Decorations”. I cut the embroidery design so it’s one single “Christmas goat” and it’s embroidered with only two colors.

Note: If you bring it into the embroidery software, do not color sort as it has stitching lines for the appliqué. Black flannel was used as the background fabric, and I had a scrap piece of cotton fabric for the “Christmas Goat”.

Another great sewing project using the “Christmas Goat”, could be to sew potholders.

You can download the design file here.

My little nephew Kevin, wish to get several small things for Christmas presents. Hair styling products, shower gel etc. I bought a toilet bag for him, that was looking nice, and to make it more personal I added his name. I made the name by using the Monogram Wizard in 5D™ Embroidery software.

Next week you will be able to download the last instruction from the holiday campaign Sew a Holiday Ready Home! the “Christmas Lace Ornaments” and we will also open up the Sewers Choice! upload, where you will be able to become sewers top 10 ranked or one of my own 3 Favorite picks. So don’t forget to continue sew all these great holiday stuff too!

Until next week I wish you all a Happy Sewing!
