Ideas for Christmas Cards & Christmas Gifts.

Posted By Lena Kantis On 10 December, 2010 @ 07:02 In Downloads,Embroidery,Inspiration | 1 Comment

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.

[2]I have used the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Design Collection # 163, “Dimensional Decorations” [3]. 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 [4].

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 [5].


Next week you will be able to download the last instruction from the holiday campaign Sew a Holiday Ready Home! [7] 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!
