Creating Personalized Cross Stitch Ornaments

Creating Personalized Cross Stitch Ornaments

Imagine their Surprise…

Imagine the delight of your special someone when they open that little gift so patiently made by you.  What a wonderful thoughtful thing to do.  Making a gift that is personalized just for them.  A cross stitch or backstitched holiday ornament is the perfect gift for someone you care about.

I have been stitching for most of my life and throughout the years my personalized gifts have been a hit with all that receive them.  The reason I believe they are so popular with the receivers is that they are generally personalized and always handmade.

I will be showing a video to help you learn how to do the stitching and some saying patterns that I have used before.  They are easy to make and always appreciated everyone loves a personalized gift.  If you get started now you can make one for everyone you care about.

This is a special favorite of mine that I made for my dad the Christmas before he passed away.


A couple more of my favorites are:

This is a wonderful saying for a sister.
Your mother will tear up when she sees this.
This thrilled my granddaughter when she received it.
A dog lover will be sure to appreciate this saying.


You could use any saying you wish.  Adding a name and date to the stitching will only make it more personal.  The sayings are in backstitch or cross stitch and are easy to do.  The following video will show you how to put together a personalized gift ornament.

This is an excellent YouTube video that will show you step by step how to make a pillow ornament for the ones you love.  I know the special people in your life will treasure it forever.
