Christmas is coming...

I have half a million Christmas projects, as usual, but I hope I can find some time to embroider some of these designs I have from one of my favorite TV Christmas specials:



I don't know what I will embroider them on, but they just make me smile! Embroidering a bunch on a sweatshirt would be too cutesy and I wouldn't wear it. Would embroidering one on a shirt still be too much? But which one? I love the abominable snow man. Polka dotted elephant is cute and so is the doll. Or Yukon Cornelius. Or Herbie. Maybe I'll just do ornaments.

  1. Maybe not a sweatshirt.. but you could make a cute wall hanging by making up a winter scene with appropriate fabrics and embroidering the figures "In action" on the top, then quilt the whole thing. Or they might look cute on a tree skirt.

  2. I love that Christmas special! I have a bunch of the stuffed characters, which we arrange on the mantel sometimes -- the cowboy on the ostrich, and the jelly-shooting gun. Makes for an odd mantel...

    Would it be too much work to make gift tags out of them?

  3. P.S. You're so much my West-coast doppelganger - I just saw your kitty bed. VERY cute, and I have a tuxedo cat, too!

  4. That's a favorite Christmas special of mine too.

    I think they'd look great on a shirt, or maybe socks?
