Cross Stitch Christmas
Every year on Christmas Eve, Father Christmas would remain earthbound if it were not for the magic of his brave and faithful reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen. And there is one more little reindeer who joined the team to guide them through the snow – and became the most famous of them all! Here is the story of Rudolph – and a magnificent embroidery. The deer’s antlers have a magical aura about them that you can recreate in these spellbinding colours.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Had a very shiny nose,

And if you ever saw it,

You would even say it glows.

All of the other reindeer

Used to laugh and call him names;

They wouldn’t let poor Rudolph

Join in any reindeer games.

But then one foggy Christmas Eve,

Santa came to say:

‘Rudolph with your nose so bright,

Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?’

Then how reindeer loved him

As they shouted out with glee,

‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,

You’ll go down in history.’

Embroidery size: 6cm (2¼in) (width) x 8.5cm (3³⁄₈in) (height) to 7cm (2¾in) (width) x 10cm (4in) (height)

Size of finished wallet: 8cm (3¼in) (width) x 19cm (7½in) (height)

    Fold the excess fabric to the reverse to centre the pattern on the width 
of 8cm (3¼in).

    Fold the bottom of the fabric to the reverse 3.5cm (1³⁄₈in) below the animal (or bird’s foot) and fold back the top edge to create a height of 19cm (7½in).

    Trim to the left of the long side, 1cm (½in) from the fold and adjust the right-hand side so it covers the back of the embroidery with a 1cm (½in) seam allowance.

    Trim below the embroidery, 1cm (½in) from the fold.
