Christmas laundry line - Advent calendar
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Chouett'alors
Here is a wonderful cross stitch project for Christmas, brought to you by Chouett'alors: a laundry line is stretched between a lampost and a tree, and hanging on to it are tiny Christmas ornaments.
There are two ways you can stitch this project:
Either you stitch the entire design onto a single piece of fabric, with each ornament worked as they are charted on the grid. Those mini clothespins will also be cross stitched. The laundry line will then be worked in long stitch, section by section, from one peg to the next.
Or you cross stitch each of the ornaments separately, using interfacing on the reverse side, so you can cut around them as close as possible to your stitches. The background motif is worked seprately on a large piece of fabric, with a long red thread hanging between the lamppost and the tree. The mini ornaments (there are 25 of them) are then hung with mini clothespins (available in craft stores) and will hang freely. The finished piece can then be used as an advent calendra if you wish.
