Four Christmas Owls
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Chouett'alors
Who wouldn't fall for this adorable Christmas cross stitch ornament?
The four little owls, with big round eyes, are perched on a snowy branch. Hanging from a red cord around their feet are the 4 letters of the word NOEL.
The more experienced stitchers can work this piece on a fine 40 ct linen canvas, stitched in 1 strand of floss over 2 threads as the effect is stunning (as in main photo). If you prefer to cross stitch on Aida, just choose a natural color background, in color cream to light linen (last photo).
One of the fun options of the design is to stitch all the white parts with Mohair wool. This will render the belly of the third owl all soft and velvety, and the borders and pompoms of the Santa hats will all be thick and furry. You can give the pom poms as much volume as you want.
A small moon-shaped button can be sewn above the owls' heads (see last photo).
Mount the the finished piece on a piece of padded cardboard, and hang in your house using a red ribbon or red and white cord.
