Christmas Freebie No. 1 – Santa’s hat

Every year we invite you to visit our Advent Calendar and to look what’s hidden behind the windows.

Also this year the calendar is filled with daily surprises, so come and see our Advent Calendar 2013.


Our second surprise for you is a series of Christmas Freebies for you. The first is available already today for download. The others you will find on the next Fridays in December before Christmas.

Today you can get a Santa Claus hat. You can apply it easily in the 10×10 hoop.


I embroidered it on a funny Christmas pillow.

First I applied the 4 letters with a button hole stitch on a base fabric.

I used cotton thread, this is my favourite thread for this stitch.


The letters I wrote in my word processor using a large size, printed them and cutted them out.

Then I transfered them to Vlisofix and cutted this out. Now I ironed it to the fabric and cutted the contours.

Now I ironed it to the pillow fabric and sewed it on.

This is not a big deal.


Then I placed the fabric in the hoop and applied the pointy cap. Of course you can printout the motif to find the best position.

A PDF file is contained in the ZIP Download.


That’s it for the frontside.

Use a piping and zipper and join front and back side.


Weihnachtskissen2Do you want to attach a bell to the pointy cap?


Do you like to sew your own Christmas pillow? Or use the Santa’s hat for something totally different?

    Am going to try the cotton thread…I really like the way it looks in your tutorial. Do you adjust your machine tension using it? What bobbin thread do you use? Thank you for the free santa patch hat design and the tutorial. I look forward to this every year.

  3. Hi Sally, I use Madeira bobbin thread in my machine. The tension is somewhat lower.

    I wish you many fun with my freebie.

    Have a nice day
