Christmas in the Kitchen: Cocoa Cross Stitch Pattern
I adore small Christmas vignettes, especially those with vintage Christmas figurines and bottle brush trees posed inside or on top of items you’d find in your kitchen. There is something so cozy and about a tiny Christmas scene inside a glass candy jar, placed atop a spice tin, or tucked inside a vintage jello mold.
“Cocoa” is one of four coordinating designs with a cozy Christmas kitchen theme. Santa and Rudolph have met in a grove of bottle brush trees atop a snow-covered tin of cocoa. They are chatting about the weather conditions before their flight. On Christmas Eve, Santa’s favorite tradition is sipping a cup of hot cocoa before heading out to deliver toys.
Pattern is a cardstock leaflet and it includes the ornament backing template for finishing.
