The 2nd Freebie and some more bags

We are happy that you liked our 1. Christmas freebie so much.

So today we have another present for you.

The cute fawn and the christmas bunny are right for the 10x10cm hoop.

Aren’t they cute both?
Stickbaer-Rehkitz+Hase

Directly here you can download them in many mebroidery formats with the color change overview:

Stickbaer-Christmas-freebie-fawn-bunny

We hope you like them as much as you liked the gingerbread man last week.

……………………………

Of course we wont miss to present our new embroidery file. You liked the Christmas Bags last week. From design, they are more for the adults, with a little embroidery on them, and so.

Today, we present you colorful “Winter-Wonder-Bags”, that are made right for our children.

No matter what is in the bag! The bag is the star 😉

NL-Winter-Wunder-Tueten

And to have bags big enough we made them not only for the 13x18cm hoop, but also for the 16x26cm hoop.

Here you can see the difference:

Stickbaer-Winter-Wunder-Tueten-Tati-7

We decided for 4 different motives:

The Christmas elf, the cute deer with the red nose, the Santa and the bobby hat are filling the lower part of the bag. So after filling and closing the bag they show their full beauty.

Stickbaer-Winter-Wunder-Tueten-Tati-1

Of course one may use them for decoration.

Just fill some wadding and close them, and you have “deco bags”.Stickbaer-Winter-Wunder-Tueten-Tati-2What about to use them for the advent calendar. Next year , only, I must confess.Stickbaer-Winter-Wunder-Tueten-Tati-4 Stickbaer-Winter-Wunder-Tueten-Tati-6You can embellish the bags a lot. Glue a pompom to the nose of Santa.Stickbaer-Winter-Wunder-Tueten-Tati-8

Sew a bell to the hat of the elf. This jingles when the bag is moved.Stickbaer-Winter-Wunder-Tueten-Tati-9

If you can’t decide what size to chose you can select the package.

Enjoy our new files and the 2nd Christmas Freebie.

We wish you a wonderful weekend and 3rd Advent.

Of course we have a new embroidery file in the shop this week.

As a supplement to our Christmas Labels that we released last week we are now adding the Christmas Bags ITH.

They are done in no time and you have a bag ready in a fraction of the time it would take to sew a bag.

They are fully lined and don’t have visible seams.

All in all they are perfect to create gift wrapping for Christmas presents.

Geschenke verzieren mit Weihnachts-Labels

I like gifts. More then getting some I like making gifts to others.

I cannot wait to surprise somebody. Sometimes I am even giving (by chance) hints on the gifts I am planning or preparing.

The last step in making gifts is packing them. There I am really spending effort.

When taking brown paper I can focus on the decorations.

Ribbons, borders, labels and more.

Or I am sewing little bags and pack the gift there in.

Of course the labels are done by myself.Stickbaer-Weihnachtslabels-Tati-1

Often done from paper, or, like these, embroidered onto wool felt.Stickbaer-Weihnachtslabels-Tati-2

And for many gifts I need a lot of labels.Stickbaer-Weihnachtslabels-Tati-3

So it comes handy to make them in my embroidery machine. So they are done perfectly.
Stickbaer-Weihnachtslabels-Tati-5

I only have to cut them out.
Stickbaer-Weihnachtslabels-Tati-6And attach them to the gift.

So many gifts and labels.Stickbaer-Weihnachtslabels-Tati-7

At the end I created 10 labels.

You can wish a German “FrohesFest” or a Norwegian and Swedisch “God Jul”.Stickbaer-Weihnachtslabels-Tati-8“Merry Christmas” of course!

Or you can say it without words, using stars, baubles or a winter glove.
Stickbaer-Weihnachtslabels-Tati-9 Stickbaer-Weihnachtslabels-Tati-10

Our new embroidery file is for the 10x10cm hoop, so everybody can do them.

And you can get them all immediately in our Stickbaer Shop.

Enjoy this first Advent weekend!

Christmas Toys

Today we open a toy shop 😉

Not really. I only want to present you our latest embroidery files that can be used as toys for the kiddies. Then of course you should leave the bells and other loose stuff away.

With our latest file you can create hearts with angel wings, small and bigger gingerbread men, stars, christmas trees flat or in 3D. Not to forget the elves stockings…

Weihnachtsspielereien

Put the wings to the gingerbread man, or leave them alone, as decoration.Stickbaer-Weihnachtsspielereien-Tati-1

Or attach them to the heart.

Isn’t this a colorful christmas toy world?Stickbaer-Weihnachtsspielereien-Tati-2

The little pom-poms on the fir are the christmas baubles.Stickbaer-Weihnachtsspielereien-Tati-3

Everywhere tiny baubles.

And red-white cord…Stickbaer-Weihnachtsspielereien-Tati-4

Isn’t this is goodly fir tree? We stacked the 5 different stars contained in the package, joined them with a thick string in the middle and decorated the ready tree.

This is so easy!

Or you place 2 stars one on the other and pack them as a present.

Done is a jingling 3D star.Stickbaer-Weihnachtsspielereien-Tati-6

Romatic hearts with wings …Stickbaer-Weihnachtsspielereien-Tati-7 Stickbaer-Weihnachtsspielereien-Tati-8This is our fir forrest …Stickbaer-Weihnachtsspielereien-Tati-9

This one I prepared for my Anja of Stoffekontor and gave it to her last week during my BERNINA-software course.

She immediately hanged it to the white house door.

Christmas Stockings 2015

For some years now, exactly since 2010, in November, we are publishing our Christmas Stockings. I know that some of you are collecting them (like the collectible Christmas bells of a well known porcelain manufacture). OK, for the moment there are more bells then stockings… BTW, I have all the bells 😉

So our mission is to offer a new stocking every year.

This year we keep the design pure and clean. This gives more place for the applique fabric you chose.

NL-Weihnachtsstiefel-2015

For our collection, inspired by nordic motifs, we again used the fabrics from Westfalenstoffe out of their collection “Bergen”. They perfectly match light colored wool felt.

Stickbaer-Weihnachtsstiefel-2015-Tati-6

Little red bells are jingeling, when I am moving the stocking.Stickbaer-Weihnachtsstiefel-2015-Tati-8

Here you can compare the different sizes from 13×18 over 16×26 to 18×30 and20x36cm. Isn’t this quite impressing?!Stickbaer-Weihnachtsstiefel-2015-Tati-10

Our stockings are done with wool felt, so they are very stable.

When you do not have the felt in the right color you can hide the felt with fabric. Place a fabric on top of the felt before continuing. For the details on this have a look at the attached embroidery instruction.

The result looks like this:

Stickbaer-Weihnachtsstiefel-2015-Tati-1 Stickbaer-Weihnachtsstiefel-2015-Tati-2

You can see the dark felt only at the waved edge, and of course on the back.Stickbaer-Weihnachtsstiefel-2015-Tati-3

There are so many options to embroider the stockings: with chistmas fabrics, inspired from nordic motifs, or do you like flowers?

Now it is up to you: Chose from different hoop sizes and several packages. Sure you find your Christmas Stocking 2015. So come over to our Stickbaer Shop!

Enjoy a creative weekend!

Nordish Cross Stitch

I like clear colors, checkered and striped fabric and cross stitch. When all comes together: perfect!

For our new embroidery file we combined simple, handmade looking cross stitch with the latest fabrics from the collection “Bergen” by Westfalenstoffe.

The result is the “Nordish Cross Stitch ITH” collection, a set of 7 different wonderful hearts and stars for the christmas tree, christmas decoration or door wrest. They are done completely in the hoop in the machine including great cross stitch motifs.

Aren’t they looking like they were made by hand?

NL-Nordish-Crossstitch-ITH

Do you own the 10x10cm hoop? then you should take the mini pack of 3 motifs, 2 hearts and 1 star. Do you have a 13x18cm hoop? Take the series of 4 motifs. Want to have them all? The complete package has 7 different ITH embroidery motifs.

It is up to you …

Do you want to know what makes it so easy? Then lean back and watch our video tutorial we prepared for you:

Video-Nordish-Crossstitch

Have you seen how easy it is?

So we made lots of them …

Stickbaer-Nordish-Cross-Stitch-Tati-8

…embellished them with checkered ribbons.Stickbaer-Nordish-Cross-Stitch-Tati-7

We used a 30 cotton thread for the cross stitch.

Important is that you chose the right embroidery needle. For the thick cotton thread an 80 needle is a good choice.

Stickbaer-Nordish-Cross-Stitch-Tati-9

This the motifs are looking like embroidered by hand with wool yarn.
Stickbaer-Nordish-Cross-Stitch-Tati-2

And you cheated and did them all in your embroidery machine.Stickbaer-Nordish-Cross-Stitch-Tati-3Use them for table decoration, in your christmas tree, …Stickbaer-Nordish-Cross-Stitch-Tati-4 … bind one to each present, hang them onto the cabinat knob, the door opener…Stickbaer-Nordish-Cross-Stitch-Tati-5… stuff them with a mixture of rice, cinnamon and aniseed…Stickbaer-Nordish-Cross-Stitch-Tati-6

Forrest and Meadow Taggies

Wow, another Taggies, you might think 😉

Yes, we’ve created some more taggies. After the Taschenbaumeleien and the Weihnachtsbaumeleien we now have the “Forrest and Meadow Taggies”.

Wald-und-Wiesenbaumelei

All in all there are 8 different cute taggies to embroider. All completely done in your embroidery machine and all are done in no time.

Look at the cow taggie and the pig taggie: both want to go on cloud No. 7.

Tag them everywhere!

Like my handbag.

BTW, I found the key rings at Snaply.Stickbaer-Wald+Wiesenbaumelei-Tati-4

Like always I did a detailled instruction for you. It comes together with the embroidery files in the download. But to see how the taggies are done you should watch our video we prepared for the Taschenbaumelei. The same technique applies to the Forrest and Meadow Taggies.

Isn’t the weather made for embroidering?

Autumn Leaves are dancing…

The weather outside is stormy. The colorful leaves are swirling through the air and they are shining in the autumn sun. It is looking great. However, this happens only a short time and then the leaves are falling down and we will sweep them to an autumn leaves pile. This is great for the hedgehogs in our garden.

Dancing leaves, that do not fade away, I created for you. They are not so useful for your hedgehog. They are more for decoration of our home.
NL-Stickbaer-Blaettertanz

Our autumn leaves are manifold: we have beech, oak and maple leaves as an applique on felt. Or embroider the redwork on soft woolfelt only the edges. Cut all out.

More, we have ITH leaves for you, maple and beech. They are looking like real leaves.

Stickbaer-Blaettertanz-Tati-1

There is a big pro!

They don’t fade away so you can use them next autumn again for decorationStickbaer-Blaettertanz-Tati-2

Look at my arrangement, a candle plate.

I got this plate together with the tiny vases at Keramikwerkstatt Noll.

I love this dotted tableware and over the years my collection has grown up. Every year for birthday and christmas I am asking my parents for new pieces as present.

Frau Noll is even fulfilling extra wishes.

Have a look there.Stickbaer-Blaettertanz-Tati-3

The dark red leaves are made of woolfelt, this is the 10x10cm redwork file.Stickbaer-Blaettertanz-Tati-4

The green leaves are appliques on woolfelt. Other great places are table runner or an autumn pillow.Stickbaer-Blaettertanz-Tati-5

The redwork I did with variegated yarn.Stickbaer-Blaettertanz-Tati-6

For the ITH leaves (the red on top and the yellow) I used a batting, so they look more plastic. After turning them I did not iron them to keep them fluffy.

The small doily was easy to do. Do you want to try your own. Then have a look at my tutorial in the BERNINA-Blog.Stickbaer-Blaettertanz-Tati-7

You also can combine our last weeks release Autumn Welcome House with the Dancing Leaves to create a wonderful door wreath for the house door.Stickbaer-Blaettertanz-Tati-8

I tied the house and glued the leaves with hot glue.Stickbaer-Blaettertanz-Tati-9It only took a few minutes.
Stickbaer-Blaettertanz-Tati-10

What about you? Are you ready to embroider your own leaves?

The right file you can find in the Stickbaer Shop for the 10x10cm and the 13x18cm hoop.

Enjoy this weekend, be it during an autumn walk, pomping in the autumn wood or embroidering your deco sets.

Seid alle lieb gegrüßt
