Happy Holidays: Unto Us A Child Is Born Stitchable

I’m so happy to be over here at Jen’s today! She’s one of my favorite people on this planet and I’m excited to share my new obsession with all of you.

It’s stitching. I can’t stop designing patterns and stitching them.

Over at U Create I love to share what we call “free stitchables” like free printables, but the patterns are free! I thought it would be fun to share a “free stitchable” with you Tatertots and Jello fans today!




I call this pattern “Unto Us a Child Is Born”. I thought it would be nice to use non-traditional Christmas colors and it’s the perfect addition to my Christmas home décor.


Free Stitchable Pattern

Fabric for Nativity – I used Moda Bella Solids Gray

DMC  317 – Pewter Gray

DMC   728 – Golden Yellow

DMC 726 – Topaz LT

DMC 729 – Old Gold MED

Piece of 8×10 Light Cream Fabric or Canvas Material

2. Cut out Joseph, Mary and Baby Jesus from the pattern and trace onto fabric.

3. Cut out your fabric and stitch onto canvas outlining it with DMC 317 – 3 strands.

4. Stitch the following using 3 strands of thread…

Frame it, put it on a pillow or whatever your heart desires!


The fun thing about these free stitchables is that you can adjust the size, switch the colors, go nuts with creativity!

Thanks so much Kari! I just love that Free stitchable! She makes everything look so easy! She has a lot of great ideas on her blog, U Create.  I worked with her on the JoAnn Craft Stores/HGTV Home Challenge and had so much fun working with her! Ucreate-Bedroom-Makeover_thumb[2]
