I’m excited to share my new obsession with all of you. It’s stitching.
I call this pattern “Unto Us a Child Is Born”. I thought it would be nice to use non-traditional Christmas colors and it’s the perfect addition to my Christmas home décor.
Fabric for Nativity – I used Moda Bella Solids Gray
DMC 317 – Pewter Gray
DMC 728 – Golden Yellow
DMC 726 – Topaz LT
DMC 729 – Old Gold MED
Piece of 8×10 Light Cream Fabric or Canvas Material
1. Trace the manger and star onto your canvas material using the pattern.
2. Cut out Joseph, Mary and Baby Jesus from the pattern and trace onto fabric.
3. Cut out your fabric and stitch onto canvas outlining it with DMC 317 – 3 strands.
4. Stitch the following using 3 strands of thread…
DMC 729 – Manger
DMC 726 – inside of Star
DMC 728 Outside of Star
Frame it, put it on a pillow or whatever your heart desires!
