Create a unique gift for your favorite sewing friend with this fun spin on the 12 Days of Christmas! Pattern features 12 spools of thread with small pockets to hold sewing notions and gifts. Not only are the pockets perfect for small sewing notions, the pockets also fit gift cards :)
Hello! I’m so excited to share this fun new felt embroidery project with you today – the 12 Spools of Christmas! The pattern, along with a complete picture tutorial, is now available in my shop!
I created this as a sweet gift you can give your sewing friend for the holidays. A fun twist on the classic 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar. Either have your friend check the pockets the 12 days leading up to Christmas OR gift them this on Christmas Day and they’ll have 12 days of fun carrying them into the new year!
This sewing project is created with wool-blend felt from Benzie Design, arranged in an ombre of reds and greens, along with coordinating DMC embroidery floss. Below you can see the project prior to filling! 12 spools of thread ready to hold cute and handy sewing notions perfect for someone who loves to sew, cross stitch, embroider, and create. A needle and swirly thread border finish the design.
The little spool of thread pockets can be filled with sewing notions and are the perfect size for gift cards to local fabric and craft stores. I filled my pockets with all sorts of fun treasures including a measuring tape, needle minder, pins, needles, decorative buttons, thimble, embroidery scissors, embroidery floss and two gift cards!
I’ll be posting a fun shopping guide tomorrow filled with ideas for stuffing these little thread pockets. I’ll post the link here once it’s live!
The entire project is hand sewn using simple stitches like the backstitch. A great project to stitch while watching your favorite Christmas movies! :)
The pattern is available in my shop and comes with a step-by-step picture tutorial. I’ve included a supply list and below you will find affiliate links to the supplies. You can create this in any color scheme you wish. If you’d like to recreate my color palette, I’ve included a list of the felt colors I used from Benzie Design and the coordinating DMC floss with the picture tutorial.
