French Hen pattern is in zee shop!


At last! French Hen patterns are available and just waiting to be made for your Christmas tree. This is the third pattern in my Twelve Days pattern series. (Here are the first two patterns: Partridge & Pear, Turtle Dove.) I'll continue to release patterns until the entire series is available. This is the last one for this year, and hopefully still in time for some holiday hand making fun.


This pattern utilizes the magical and amazing time-saving properties of Sulky Printable Sticky Fabri-Solvy, a very long name for a stabilizer that makes quick work of these ornaments. There is no tracing or transferring of embroidery designs. Just sew right on top of the printed lines:


If you can do basic hand embroidery stitches then you can do this project. There are helpful tips for whipstitch, backstitch and French knots in the Resources section of the pattern. And of course, lots of step by step diagrams. I'll be using the same stabilizer method for each of the ornaments in the series.

You can find all three currently available patterns in this Twelve Days series in both my Etsy and my Craftsy shops.

  3. I have been searching for a cute christmas ornament to make for my family members for weeks and just came across these. They are adorable!! I just bought the french hen and the partridge and pear in your etsy shop and the coordinating felts and floss from benzie. I can't wait to make my own. You are crazy talented.
