Cutwork Class -- Christmas Tree Placemat

Do you know there is a cutwork tool that works with your Bernina Machine?    Do you have a cutwork tool but never tried it?   Cheryl has been at it again, this time she has created the cutest Christmas tree and matching embroidery that you can do with your Cutwork Tool and Software to create a Christmas Placemat.

This class will use the Bernina cutwork tool to create two different designs that are then used to make one placemat.  We will stitch/cut out two sets of both designs so you can complete two placemats at home.  The left side of the placemat has a Reverse Applique Christmas Tree.  The right side of the placemat has a Christmas Gift pocket that can be used to hold silverware when you set your table!  


 Bernina  Cutwork Class Description   
(Same Document but a PDF File     Cutwork_Christmas_Tree_Placemat_Class_Description.pdf   )

In this class

Embroidery and cutwork are completed first in the hoop.

o   The Christmas Tree requires a large oval hoop (or larger – the Midi hoop will work as well since it is just slightly larger)

o   The Gift piece can be done in a medium hoop. This is the small square hoop that came with your Bernina.

  •        You will receive instructions for completing your placemat, following the process used for the class sample.  You can finish using a different approach if you prefer.
