The calendar said National Poinsettia Day is December 12th, and that got me sketching. The concept drawing sat on my desk for about a week before Thanksgiving this year. The night before buried us in snow, and it kept coming well into the late morning. It lightened up for a bit, so we went out to play. It was then that we made the little introduction video. That video locked me in: It was on Thanksgiving, so the design had to go out within a day or so. Fortunately, the weather kept us mostly indoors anyway. (Except to shovel the driveway, of course!)
The project is a freestanding poinsettia made up of three designs sew on water-soluble stabilizer. It’s a fun and easy embroidery with a really pretty final product. You may sew the final version with the enclosed files, or follow the lesson on digitizing and make your own personalized creation.
Art and design files for this project are available at the bottom of this page after our announcement.
