Gingerbread Lane – Christmas swag


Gingerbread Lane – Christmas swag
Finished size ~ 1.2m (47″) long with 63.5cm (25″) of decorations

– A sweet, decorative swag for the festive season, with simply embroidered stars and three gingerbread houses featuring candy canes, potted trees, spiraling vines and double-sided fabric rooftops. Add a little embroidered Christmas to your mantle piece, book shelf, window and more.

– The gingerbread houses and stars are embroidered, backed with felt, then carefully cut out. The rooftops are cut from easily made double-sided fabric, and are attached to the houses with central embroidery. With their edges left unstitched, the rooftops are able to sit up from the houses a little and cast a small shadow. The top of each house and star is attached to a length of ric-rac to create a swag.

– This pattern includes an IRON ON TRANSFER so you won’t have to spend any of your stitching time tracing. You’ll also find a full sized pattern sheet and comprehensive illustrated and photographic instructions.
