I was staring at the frost in my yard as the idea of this week’s project hit me. So I sketeched out this fun reindeer with stars hanging from his antlers to share with you!
I’m going to work the project in DMC Embroidery Floss, color #115 Varigated Garnet.
You can choose to work the pattern in the same color, choose your favorite single color, or work it in multiple colors. The choice is yours!
Work the design in basic surface embroidery stitches from our online stitch guide. Suggested stitches are stem stitch, back stitch, running stitch, or chain stitch.
You can get creative with the stars, saddle and interior of the reindeer’s body as well.
Try using seed stitch or French knots to fill an area, or herringbone stitch to outline the saddle.
I’m going to stitch the reindeer right along with you, and will post my progress on Thursday.
