I’m SOOO glad to be sharing today’s post with you. It’s a poinsettia embroidery pattern that I started TWO Christmases ago. I don’t know why it took me so long to finish. I think it just got pushed aside for other Christmas crafts every year. It’s also really big. Anyway, I plan on turning it into a pillow, so I guess it’s still not 100% done. It feels good to get the embroidery portion done and posted though.

To stitch this poinsettia embroidery pattern, you’ll need:
- free poinsettia embroidery pattern (instructions to download are at the bottom of this post)
- large embroidery hoop (I used a 10 inch hoop, and it still wasn’t big enough since I plan on using this for a pillow. You can always resize the pattern before printing to make it fit inside a hoop.)
- white fabric – I used a tea towel
- embroidery floss (Colors listed on the pattern.)
- embroidery needle
- transfer materials (I used FriXion pens. Take a look at some other methods on my How to Transfer and Embroidery Pattern post.)
I love the texture a bunch of French knots add to the center of a flower.
I used a chain stitch for the outline of the flower petals, which was fun since I don’t get to do that one very often. I used different stitches for the leaves. Some were done with a fishbone and some with satin.
These leaves were too big to fill in, so they got outlined in a split stitch. I didn’t realize how similar a split stitch and a chain stitch could look. I guess technically they are kind of similar, just executed differently.
