Day 1 Ornament-Hand Stitched Nativity

 I have a tradition in my house of making at least one new ornament every year.This year I wanted something simple and sweet, and not Santa Clause. I ran across a stitched sampler that my mother-in-law has that stated "It All Began With A Family" quite a while ago and it just has never left me. So with that in mind, I came up with this...
It is hand stitched on muslin and then color set with regular old crayolas. At first I was going to frame it and then went with the stable cutout instead. It is exactly what I wanted and in fact lead me to draw up patterns for an angel, shepherd, and wise men as well.

You will find the image patterns here. Feel free to print and use them. 
You can also purchase this ready-to-Go Kit at my Etsy Shop. It includes everything you need to create an ornament of  your own.

Happy crafting and I'll see you tomorrow!
