So here it is....the new design in our pattern line known as The Toymaker.
I loved stitching and drawing up this project, while sketching I was thinking about how cold it was here in our part of the world during Christmas in July - hence the hat and scarf. The scottie dog? well he is a new creature to the Cinderberry designs and this is the first time he has appeared in my sketches. I like him and his little coat.....yes I think little scottie will return again in some other 'future' project, he is too cute to just stitch once.
The shop window and garland of stockings is one I would have loved to stand and stare at as a child. Full of inspiration, dreams, fun and make believe...the best kind of toys.
The Toymaker combines three projects all in one pattern - a gift card holder, miniature quilt and tiny stitched letter to Santa. To give you an idea of the project sizes - the stitched envelope below measures 3" x 2" because great things come in small packages.
The pattern also comes packaged with iron on transfers so you can transfer to your fabric quickly and stitch straight over my lines (no need to spend time tracing if you don't wish to!) and for those who prefer to transfer by hand with a super fine pen (like me) yes a design sheet is included for you too ;)
Say "hello" to Scottie dog.....I promise he will return again at some stage!

It's no secret, I love Christmas time & I hope you do too...
