There’s nothing cuter than handmade holiday ornaments, and Kooler Design Studio has you covered for ideas with their book Mini Cross Stitch Ornaments.
The book, published by Leisure Arts, has 160 little deigns for just about everything you’d want to use to deck your halls, from snowmen to Santas, stockings and bells, even a Christmas cow.
There’s a series of penguins, a collection of religious designs and images for the 12 days of Christmas.
It also includes details on different ways to finish the ornaments, such as stitching on plastic canvas and trimming to size, using regular cross-stitch fabric backed with felt or adding batting and backing to make a more three-dimensional shape, among other options.
This book is a lot of fun to look at and to stitch from and should give you a lot of ideas for your own holiday decor as well as gifts.
