Christmas Cat Cards Project

Christmas Cat Cards Project DESIGNED BY LESLEY TEARE Meowy Christmas Santa Paws is coming to town, ready to spread some mischief as well as Yuletide cheer! Packed with cute detail H ere comes trouble! It looks like these curious cats have gotten into a box of holiday decoration­s! But who could stay mad at these adorable, sweet faces? Tangled in tinsel and batting about baubles, these six cards each feature a fluffy kitten (or two) in bright and bold festive colours with a punny greeting sure to delight any cat lover. Lesley has captured the playful spirit of these mischievou­s moggies so perfectly that you just won’t be able to resist stitching the whole set. Worked on 14-count aida in whole stitches and backstitch, with only a couple of fractional­s and French knots, you’ll be able to stitch up a card in an evening or two. Factb Stitching Time Approx. 6-7 hours each Type of Stitches Cross stitch, fractional­s, backstitch, French knots Ease of Stitching Advanced beginner/ intermedia­te We’ve made our furry friends into cards so you can share their cheeky charm with your loved ones. However, if you’d rather adopt them for yourself, these cuddly creatures would make beautiful seasonal decoration­s on your fireplace, too. Meet the designer Lesley Teare I had so much fun designing these festive cats with their humorous quotes! There are a few fractional­s and small backstitch­es used to achieve the detail in places, so hopefully you will enjoy stitching them all. www.gathered.how/woxs The World of Cross Stitching 20
