Christmas Tags

These embroidered gift tags have a multitude of uses - personalise special gifts, add names to Christmas stockings, attach to table gifts or wine glasses to use as place settings at your Christmas dinner, or simply tie to your tree as a decoration. There are 6 designs, each measuring 5"x3", featuring a seasonal character or decoration and your choice of message. The designs are available individually as kits or as a pdf pattern for all 6 tags.

The tags combine simple stumpwork techniques such as padding, wrapped wire and beads, with simple embroidery stitches. The instructions are easy to follow, with plenty of diagrams, a stitch guide, full-scale patterns, an alphabet and seasonal phrases for you to compile your messages.
