Dropcloth Samplers are designed by US based textile artist Rebecca Ringquist. A dropcloth is something that you can get messy, without worrying about making mistakes. 

Gingerbread Houses! An embroidery sampler that when complete you can sew into four festive holiday ornaments, perhaps with customized messages of love on the bottom or backside. 

This sampler includes four Gingerbread House panels for you to embroider by hand.  The photo samples used back stitch, running stitch, satin stitch, and french knots, but you can choose your own stitches to suit your own taste.  For best results, we recommend using 3 strands of embroidery floss or size 8 perle cotton in your needles.  This is a great opportunity to use beads and sparkly threads as well!

Please note that threads are NOT included but you can use any perle cotton or embroidery  floss for your sampler – a great way to use up old scraps!  Or try some of our Paint Box Threads!  Making up instructions are included as well as stitch suggestions  - stitch instructions and threads are not included.

Uncut panel size 40 x 15cm
Finished height of houses approx 11cm high

I loved these so much `i bought more

These are so cute and a really enjoyable project that you can customise in so many ways. I made some as gifts and everyone loved them.

Gingerbread houses

What a lovely gift! I was thrilled to receive this. The instructions were easy to follow without being dictatorial, leaving me to use my own choice of stitches. A very relaxing stitching gift.
