About your Gingerbread Tree Etui Project

The “Gingerbread Tree Etui” is is the perfect yummy companion to the other pieces in the Gingerbread Village. It is a delicious four-sided tree, trimmed with button and bead candies, fully lined and decorated with white ‘icing sugar’ snow. It can be stitched on Gingerbread coloured linen, with delectable silk flosses, beads, silks, multicoloured beads and buttons for candy tree decorations. We have added a snowy ribbon at the top to close the front, and the other three sides are stitched together with overcase snowy white icing stitches. Each side has a different scene.. two stitchers working on their Christmas projects near a warm fire, a little Christmas town with a wee snowman, a tiny horse pulling a sleigh through the snow, and finally, Santa crossing the skies over a little harbour town. When you undo the ribbons at the top, you see a decorated Gingerbread Pincushion nestled inside! Sooo cute! We have also added some optional floss rings and some elasticized bands made of lining fabric to hold packages of needles or thread. Finally, there is a fully decorated scissors case attached to the lining of the front piece.

For this learning design, you will learn and practice Spider Web Roses, Bullion Knots, Silk Ribbon Roses, Lazy Daisies, Herring-bone, Rhodes Stitches, and excellent in depth instructions on Finishing the tree! In the chart, Lisa's directions, and Thea's colour photos will make finishing beautiful and easy for you. You can set your new Gingerbread Tree Etui on the mantle with the rest of your Gingerbread Village, you can display them all as centerpieces for your Christmas table, or set them beside your Stitching Chair to add some extra Christmas Cheer to the Season.. Getting excited?

Level - Intermediate  (should be familiar with working on even weave linen and want to learn some free form embroidery in a safe and counted environment)

Other Supplies you may need:
We suggest you mount your linen on a set of roller frames, Q-snaps, a lap frame or standing frame. If you use roller bars, please make sure that they are at least 1" wider than the width of your cut material. Other tools include a set of sharp scissors with fine blades, extra tapestry needles, doodle cloth for practice. After stitching your linen, you will need finishing materials to finish your project as shown in your Student Kit finishing instructions.  We will also supply a fabric layout cutting and prework guide.
