Use this pattern to create your own unique version of the prancing deer using your favorite embroidery stitches.
The pattern is provided as a .jpg file, so you can easily enlarge or reduce the pattern using basic photo editing software on your computer.
To transfer the reindeer design to fabric, fold the square of evenweave fabric into quarters and mark the center point of the base fabric. Center the pattern under the fabric and *trace the embroidery design onto the fabric using the water-soluble fabric marking pen. *TIP: If you have difficulty seeing the pattern through the fabric, use a light box, or trace the design by holding the fabric and pattern up to a window.
I'd love to see your finished creation - feel free to email me a photo!
