Christmas Gift Box

Good morning blogger friends.  Today I am joining Heather at Stitching Lotus for our monthly Smalls SAL check-in.
I have been doing quite a lot of stitching for Christmas, mainly small gifts and I started by covering a dull cream coloured box with a bit of embroidery and a bright red fabric.


I don´t think I have ever used fabric glue before but needed to use it on the insides and at the bottom of the box.  I used Gutermann creativ ht2 textile glue


The little embroidered bird pattern is called Baby Cardinal by The Victoria Sampler.


and I added a bow and a couple of silver beads.


I also made a matching heart.

Twelve Days of Christmas update.

I have also been working on this free design by Paulette Stewart.  This is slow work as there was very little fabric choice at my local shop and I ended up with 40ct linen.  My favourite is 28 or 32 because stitching on 40 reminds me that I need to change my glasses.


We are now up to the Eighth Day, so I will take more photos for my next post.

Thank you for passing by.  Hope to see you next week.

  4. The box and sachet are so beautiful! I love how you changed the heart shape on the sachet. Those will make wonderful gifts.

    Is fabric glue 'tacky' so you can move the fabric around after you apply it or does it stick immediately? Did you choose that glue so it wouldn't bleed through?

  23. Love the little cardinal box. It is so pretty and such a lovely gift for someone. I have all kinds of little boxes around the house and I tuck little treasures inside them. We have cardinals here and at this time of year it is such a treat to see them in the trees which have lots their leaves. The pop of red is quite startling against the grey skies.
