I just wanted to make sure you all got a chance to grab a discount in our shop – 20% off with the code CHRISTMASINJULY when you checkout! Above is a little reminder of all of our Christmas patterns, including the two we released this month, which you can check out in the Christmas section in the shop – but you’re free to use the discount on any pattern(s) you like. The discount ends tomorrow, at the end of July!
Merry Christmas in July, everyone – thanks so much for joining us!
Introducing (or re-introducing) the first of our new Christmas embroidery patterns for Christmas in July – we’ve revamped our Little Elves pattern and popped it into the Little Dorrit & Co. shop, complete with color and stitch guide.
We added some new detail to the pattern, and spruced up the colors a little. We really hope you guys like these sweet little elves!
Now, this isn’t a small, quick project – the finished embroidery is 11″ across! We like a meaty project to sink our stitchy teeth into, don’t you?! But if such a large project makes you nervous, the pattern also looks adorable without the wreath – stick to the center elements and pop it into an 8″ hoop for a charming Christmas decoration.
We’ve also taken the opportunity to turn our Little Elves embroidery into a simple wall hanging – come back tomorrow for a tutorial for this holiday project!
Put your jingle bells on, people, because today is the beginning of Christmas in July here at button button! Mom and I have been planning this for a while because we know that December is, let’s be honest, the most hellish month. We crafters know that good intentions alone are not enough to get all of those fun decorations and thoughtful handmade gifts done before the big day!
So join us this month for Christmas in July here on the blog and get an early start! We’ll be sharing new Christmas-themed Little Dorrit and Co. embroidery patterns and tutorials to turn them into lovely finished decorations – and just generally being Christmassy. :)
It was a pretty small giveaway this time, so your odds were good – was it you that won a copy of our new Dracula embroidery pattern?! No. 8, c’mon down: Lee, who made a furry Clifford the dog costume for her daughter! That’s so awesome, halloween is the best holiday ever. Lee, your pattern is on its way to you by email – I really hope you enjoy it!
