Here’s how to make some Christmas dinner themed pendant necklaces! Cross stitch a pudding, turkey, brussels sprout and a pig-in-blanket.

You will need some 13-count vinyl Aida (DMC/Charles Craft), one scrap of ribbon per pendant, and a necklace chain to put it on. Use your usual DMC stranded cotton to stitch the designs using 3 strands for best coverage.

Each pendant needs two sides, so choose two designs as your front and back or the same design twice. Complete the backstitch (using 2 strands) of the motifs, but don’t backstitch around the outline of the circles yet. Cut out your sides from the vinyl Aida along the red cutting-out line. Don’t worry, the vinyl doesn’t fray. Looking like the above, the sides are now ready for assembly.

For this example, the front is a turkey and the back is a pudding. Place your two sides back to back to be stitched together. Use 2 strands, about 70 cm long. 1 Starting at the bottom, stitch back and forth through each side, alternating spaces along the indicated backstitch line. Fold over a small piece of ribbon to make a loop and hold it sandwiched in the sides at the top. Stitch over it as you go around, securing it in place.

2 When you’ve stitched all the way around, your front will look like this. 3 And the back side will look like this.

4 Now continue around the outside again, filling in the gaps on each side as you go on the front, 5 and on the back. 6 When you complete the stitching, bring the two ends of the thread between the sides so that you can knot them together away from the outside. Run the thread between the sides to hide it.

The pendant is done and ready for your necklace chain. To help the chain through the loop, attach a bit of thread to the end of it, put the thread in a needle, and draw it through the loop. You could finish by sticking on a tiny bow to the ribbon, or how about a small jingle-bell?

Thanks for following along, Merry Christmas 2016!

Does anybody know what the highest Christmas chart position for a 1D song has been?

Hopefully I looked these up properly, but:

  • In 2011, What Makes You Beautiful was #24.
  • In 2012, Little Things was #16.
  • In 2013, Story Of My Life was #10.
  • In 2014, Night Changes was #8.
  • In 2015, History was #8.

So Louis beat all of those with #3. 😊
