Blackwork Christmas Designs
that stitch up quickly

The three smaller blackwork Christmas designs on this page can be mounted into aperture cards to send to your family and friends during the festive season.

Alternatively, why not stitch two of each of them and make them into a set of six coasters to give as a Christmas gift?

They would also make great christmas ornaments for the tree!

They make an ideal introduction to the blackwork technique  All you will need is a small piece of fabric, a little floss in black (plus red for the robin) along with some sparkly metallic gold thread. 

Even if, like me, you tend to leave things until the last minute, you will find that these designs each stitch up in around 2 to 3 hours. Download them now and have a finished project ready by the end of the day!

The charts are presented in pdf format, so you can use them whether you are on a PC or a Mac.

So all that is left for me to do is wish you a Happy Christmas and let you browse the designs and pick your favorites. Let's start with the largest of the designs, a sweet star.

Blackwork christmas designs suitable for cards or coasters

Blackwork Star

What would Christmas be without a star atop the tree? Using just two fill patterns this blackwork star features tiny stars and gift-wrapped parcels stitched in black and gold.

Stitched on perforated paper with a hanging loop stuck on the back you can pop it over the top of the tree. If your tree is visible from both sides, you could stitch two stars and stick the loop to the back
