Even if you are running out of time, I have some very simple Christmas embroidery patterns you can whip up in no time! Frame the finished product, or turn it into a pillow!

I'm not claiming they are EASY--if you are a beginner, you probably won't enjoy all the tiny words--but they are SIMPLE because they use just a few stitches and basic supplies--pattern, instructions, scissors and these:
|Embroidery Hoop Floss Needles Muslin|
If you are a beginner, you might want to omit the words and just stitch the angel or Santa (below). It would still be lovely!
Unfortunately, I don't have any step-by-step photos of this particular project, but watch my Tutorials page and I will post some helpful links to other tuts on the internet.
These particular patterns only use 3 different stitches:
|Back Stitch French Knot Outline or Stem Stitch|
Of course, you can use any variety of stitches you wish!
First, you will trace the design onto your muslin with pencil or a disappearing marker. Insert fabric into hoop and start stitching! I have all the suggested colors noted for you but you can use whatever you like!
Finishing touches: I like to take a red crayon and add some angel "cheeks" very lightly. I stitched a little cross charm to the angel below.

|Santa Christmas Embroidery Design and Santa Ornament Pattern|
Looking through my patterns, I realize how long it's been since I did any new stitching! I'm getting the itch to stitch again! Time to whip out my needle and floss!
So, what are you working on?
