This festive pattern features gingerbread cookies and text that reads "Kringle's Bakery." A garland of snowy pine separates the text from the gingerbread cookies. The garland is adorned with ornaments and features a frosted cookie in the center. The little gingerbread friends are wearing their Santa suits and are enjoying a dusting of powdery snow. A candy cane border encloses the top and bottom of the design.
PATTERN DETAILS: The design was stitched on 32ct Raw Natural Belfast Linen. The pattern calls for floss from DMC, Classic Colorworks, and Weeks Dye Works. DMC alternatives are given. The pattern uses whole stitches only, and the stitch count is 83w x 105h.
FABRIC TIP: Make sure you choose fabric that is dark enough to help show off the snowy white stitches!
RECREATE THE LOOK: Finish Fabric: Snow Sweet Red Candy Cane Ticking Stripe Yardage, SKU C9670-Red (from Riley Blake Designs). Cording: The cording uses 6 lengths of the full six ply DMC floss to get the thickness seen on the model. I used 2 lengths of DMC 911, 2 lengths of DMC 910, and 2 lengths of DMC 909. Basically, I just used all the pattern leftovers! I spun it all together with my Kreinik Corder.
Bow: The bow uses 2 types of ribbon. The emerald green ribbon is a 1.5 inch grosgrain ribbon from Offray. The red snowflake ribbon is a single-sided, 7/8" grosgrain ribbon that is also from Offray. I found them both at Walmart. The white button came from a bulk button pack that I found at Hobby Lobby. The ends of the emerald green ribbon were dovetailed and sealed with fray check. The ends of the snowflake ribbon were clipped horizontally.
