Wool Applique Pattern Santa Claus Embroidery Ornament “Hoping for Cookies & Milk” from the series “Long Gone Days”



Are there still children who set out a plate of cookies and a glass of milk for Santa on Christmas Eve? Are there still little ones who creep out of bed to look out the window into the dark starry sky, hoping to catch a glimpse of a sleigh and reindeer flashing by? … who listen for the far-off jingle of bells and a jolly “Ho-ho-ho!” … ? I hope so! For them, and for those who cherish such memories, here, measuring about 7″ x 5″ is this sweet Santa, perfect as a whimsical little pillow, a pin cushion, or a darling ornament.

Your purchase is, as always, shipped for FREE, regardless of the option you choose (pattern or pattern-and-kit-both).

Packed into a clear 9″ x 12″ zip lock bag, your pattern includes a cover page with a slightly larger-than-life-size color photograph of the completed project (same as the one shown in this listing), a second page of color photographs showing magnified stitching details, a page of detailed instructions, and pages with drawings of all the pattern elements (full-size and traceable), as well as a full-size line drawing. Last-but-not-least, a list of fabric and thread requirements is on the back.

If you purchase the kit along with the pattern, you will also receive all the wool fabric to complete this project, as pictured above. As floss tends to be a personal choice, it is not included in the kit. However, a list of the DMC Perle Cotton size 8 colors used in these designs is included on the “Fabric Requirements” page of the pattern.

“Hoping for Cookies & Milk” is just one of a series of 13 ornaments in the series, “Long Gone Days.”
