For thousands of years, artists have embroidered items to add glory and reverence. Even early works of embroidery involved intricate, detailed stitches — every one done by hand — to elevate revered items to their appropriate status. Today, we have elegant machines to do the fine stitching for us, but that doesn’t make the designs any less exquisite. Every home needs festive linens, pillows, towels, and table runners, especially at Christmas. And for fabric artists who own a top-of-the-line embroidery machine from Cathey’s Sewing & Vacuum in Tucson, crafting homemade Christmas presents has never been easier or more beautiful. If you’re planning to sew your own heirloom gifts this holiday season, try these holiday embroidery styles that will bring smiles to the faces of everyone you love.
Holiday Embroidery Styles for the Kitchen
While Christmas trees and snowmen will never go out of style, words are all the rage this year. Embroidered sentiments make charming designs that can be displayed all year long, and though they don’t look it, they’re deceptively easy to make with your embroidery sewing machine. Built-in and downloadable fonts make these popular embroidery ideas a go-to choice for gift-giving. Consider using some of the more modern bundles, such as:
- Bible Verses
- Country Sayings
- Kitchen Wine Quotes
- Coffee-Related Quips
- Inspirational Quotes
Of course, you can always opt to stitch a classic holiday greeting on those tea-towels for your special neighbor who loves her kitchen best of all, but if you choose a quote, such as “Enjoy the Little Things” or “But First, Coffee,” she can display them all year long.
Embroidered Gifts for the Whole Family
Infant gifts such as hooded towels, sweatshirts, and blankets are fun to customize, and baby’s mom will cherish them forever — long after they’ve been outgrown. And stitching your tween’s name on her ballet bag or cinch sack will delight her, come Christmas morning. Holiday stockings that you’ve customized with names and Christmas designs such as angels, wreaths, or cookies and filled with fun treats will charm everyone in the house, including the family pet.
Embroidery for Pets
Does your four-legged friend have a favorite towel or blanket? Buy a new one just like it, and embroider his name in the corner. Add a holiday design like holly berries or snowflakes to make it more festive. Wash it and pack it away at the end of the season to be brought out again, year after year.
