Following customer feedback a set of six mini Christmas prick and stitch patterns have been released at the Pinbroidery web site. The size of these patterns is 88 mm x 114 mm (3.5 x 4.5 inches). These mini patterns use sections of the larger Value Pack 3 Christmas patterns also available at Pinbroidery. They feature bells, candles, Happy Christmas, a fur tree, a poinsettia and a sleigh. These patterns make beautiful cards for the Christmas season.
If you want to try this size of pattern before you buy there are two free mini stitching patterns in the free section of the Pinbroidery web site. These are a reworking of the free flower corners and star border patterns.
I chose the 88 mm x 114 mm size because blank double-fold cards of this size are readily available in the UK from suppliers such as Craft Creations.
As mentioned in my post about the release of the mini flower patterns, a lot of customers have asked me to design smaller versions of the square Pinbroidery patterns. When a customer asked for much smaller cards I realised that this could be achieved by taking elements of the larger design without reducing them. An experiment on the two free Pinbroidery patterns showed that this was possible so I moved on to the William Morris inspired flower designs followed by the mini Christmas designs.
Please let me know what you think about this smaller size of pattern.
