“Christmas Sugar Cookies” New Design That Makes You Want To Bake!

 

I’ll tell you what, this candle mat, sitting on your table, will make you hungry.  I can almost guarantee it. ChristmasSugars I just know from personal experience.  Family members are telling me how real the cookies look…..

 

ChristmasSugars7 Especially when the ornaments are put on a plate in the center of the mat.

So, the pattern is done and ready for mailing.

The finished size is 13” round.  Basic stitches are used … blanket stitch, whip stitch and french knots … lots of french knots!

If you don’t like making french knots, seed beads will work very nicely instead.

I have wool available to go along with this pattern. 

The white wool that will be in the kits is the same wool that I have used for the candle mat in the picture.  It’s vintage wool fabric and it’s super thick and dense. It’s just the perfect texture to make these cookies look real.

The “Icing” wool that will be included in the wool kit is my own hand-dyed wool made with new regular weight wool.  The kit will include the black background and enough black wool for the backing too.

The kit doesn’t include the threads, but those are easily purchased at Joann’s or Michaels. 

As always, I offer the pattern here, on the blog, at a special discounted price. 

Prices include the shipping cost for US customers only. International will need to pay just a little extra, just ask.

For now, the pattern is $8.50

The wool kit for the candle mat, which includes the pattern is $38.00

The wool kit for the candle mat and enough wool to make 6 ornaments is $45.00. (Includes the pattern too)

Any questions?  Just ask!

If you don’t wish to pay with Paypal, I accept personal checks and money orders.  Email me for mailing info.  cathspennies@gmail.com

 

Happy Day!

I got to your blog from hopping down Sweet P's blog roll and am so glad I did! I love this pattern and have ordered the whole kit and kaboodle. It is the answer I have been looking for to answer the question "What fun thing can I make for Christmas this year and actually complete?" Thanks and I am now a follower. Can't wait to see what you do next and I hope this pattern brings you lots of Christmas shopping money!

Hi Cath,
I just purchased this pattern! It will be the perfect item to stitch up for my hubby's American Legion auction benefit coming up on Nov. 11th. I am going to add a yankee candle to go with it! I'm sure it will be a hit.
