Christmas Stitching - Mini Pincushion/Candy Holders

Good afternoon everyone!! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday.

I stitched up these mini Christmas designs last month, but had to restitch three of them yesterday because I cut them too small when trying to finish them.

I found the containers at Michael's in their dollar section during October. I knew I could make them into something fun as Christmas gifts.

I used metallic cording and ribbon to embellish the edges of the lid and around the cross stitch design on each container.

I opened one of the containers (in lower right of picture). All of them have a shiny silver finish in the inside.

I plan on filling each container with small candies as part of my Christmas gifts for my friends at our annual get together later in December.

In terms of frolicking, I haven't decided on what to work on next. I have two WIPs in my stash, the cottage cake series by Cottage Country Needleworks and a French design by Anagram Diffusions that I could work on......ah, decisions, decisions!

Happy stitching everyone!!!


  1. What a great idea, and so cute too!

  2. Lovely, how you prepared the little containers that will hold candies for your friends. A wonderful idea.
