Description

This is a PDF pattern download, not the actual ornament! This does not include materials. Please note: This pattern is written in English.

Pattern no. 8 - Maid a-Milking
I’ve always loved the traditional Twelve Days of Christmas song, so I designed this series of hand sewn folk ornaments for each of the twelve days, based on the original carol from 1780. The order is a bit different and day four is colly bird, an old English term for blackbird. (Calling bird was substituted in later.)

For more information on this ornament series as well as links to construction tips, Benzie Design's coordinating felt/floss kits and also to Felt On The Fly's kits, please visit this page on my blog: http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/p/twelve-days.html

This detailed pattern shows you how to make a colorful, embroidered milk maid ornament. Perfect for your Christmas tree or for special handmade gifting. The ornament is sewn entirely by hand. Choose your own colors, or follow my pre-chosen colors of felt and floss (see them here: http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/p/twelve-days.html).

HOW HARD ARE THESE TO MAKE? If you can do precision cutting, basic hand stitches (running stitch, whipstitch, backstitch and French knot) and are familiar with sewing and embroidery terms, then you can make this project and make it well!
HERE'S WHY: this pattern utilizes a Sulky brand water-soluble stabilizer which makes putting the ornament together easy, fast and accurate. The design prints or copies directly on the stabilizer, which is then adhered to the felt, and you embroider right on top of it!
NO TEDIOUS PATTERN TRACING OR EMBROIDERY TRANSFER. Fantastic! (If you can't use the Sulky stabilizer, I've also included tips for that.)

The 15-page Maid a-Milking pattern features:

4.25 x 5.5 inch wool felt milk maid ornament with embroidery
3.5 inch hanging loop
Neat, digitally drawn, actual-sized pattern pieces that do not overlap
Step-by-step instructions with clear, professionally drawn diagrams and color sample photos
Resources section with stitching diagrams, tips and supply links

Materials used to make this ornament are commonly available. They include: wool or wool-blend felts, cotton pipe cleaners, unfinished wood beads, embroidery floss, stuffing and a printable stabilizer. A complete list of materials is in the photo of the pattern page above. Click Zoom to read through it.

This pattern is in PDF format on 8.5 x 11 inch paper, so you can print it from your regular printer at home on standard paper and printable stabilizer, as many times as you need for personal use.

This pattern PDF will be available for INSTANT DOWNLOAD once your payment is completed!

Additional policies

COTTAGE INDUSTRY SELLERS:
If you are a home sewer and have a cottage industry personally making things with your own little hands and selling them to your friends, in a craft booth or personal online shop (read: no mass production), you can purchase my patterns for that purpose, with my blessing.

Go forth and make it a success! Make as many as you are personally capable of. Sew for your friends. Sew for your shop. Sew for craft fairs and bazaars. Sew up a storm! Of course there are terms. But not that many:

- A reminder that the copyright on my patterns still stands: That is, you may not copy, resell, share, distribute or publish (online or otherwise) any portion of any of my patterns without prior permission from me. Period. Basically anything that involves sharing any part of my patterns with anyone else is a no-no.

- Each sewer must purchase a pattern for themselves. If you have a friend who is interested in partnering up with you, or you are hosting a craft party, please refer each of them to my blog or shop to purchase their own pattern. Thank you! (Exceptions may be made in the case of charitable sewing, just be sure to check with me first!)

-Production is limited. To honor the 'no mass production' spirit, please limit your listings (or display in your booth) no more than twenty MmmCrafts items at a time. This means a total of twenty of any pattern combination, for instance:
8 Mikey Monkeys + 12 Christmas Ornaments = limit of 20.
If you are selling something as a set under one listing (like ornaments) that would count as one item.

- Include credit where it's due. Please list a credit for the pattern on each listing or on each hang tag for the item: Pattern by Larissa Holland, mmmcrafts.blogspot.com or something like that.

- Minor derivatives are ok, but even if you make changes in the way a pattern is made, please still give a credit to me for the pattern, along with a note that it is a variation.

- PLEASE NOTE that it is really really really NOT OK to use any of my photos, images, logos, badges, or graphics to promote your site or booth on signs, flyers, tags, headers, etc... Don't do it! Those images are copyrighted.

Judging from the number of requests I get, there are a lot of readers out there who don't have the time or inclination to sew for themselves and they would appreciate knowing where to find your MmmCrafts handmade items. Let's get you two together! Send me a link to your shop so I can place it on the Mmmakers page on my blog so folks will know where to find you and buy your MmmCrafts stuff.

FAQs

Sorry, I can't make any custom orders. I just don't have the time. If you invent a way to add more hours to the day, please let me know. :-). There is a list of independent crafters on my blog who make custom orders from my patterns. Feel free to contact them: http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/p/mmmakers.html
You can find A LOT of great information on this resource page for my Twelve Days Ornament Series (including color guides and felt/floss bundles and kits):
http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/p/twelve-days.html
I include sizing details in the individual pattern listings, but they may not be in the bundled listings. The average size for the Twelve Days Christmas ornaments is about 4 x 5 inches. It varies of course, because the shapes vary a good bit.
I do not offer wholesale printed patterns at this time. It’s on my to do list! I do offer 20% bulk discount for 10+ patterns to stores if you wish to offer classes. Just convo me with your store details to get started.
Because my patterns are downloads, and are not emailed, it’s best to give an Etsy gift card along with a link to my shop. That way your friend can choose a gift and download it from their own Etsy account (which is free and easy to create). Purchased patterns are backed up at Etsy for them and available anytime in case of computer crashes, lightning strikes, or toddlers with peanutbuttery hands. The links do not expire.
If you purchase either with your account or as a guest, Etsy sends a purchase receipt with links to your patterns to the email address you entered. You can use the email links to download your pattern.

If you purchased with your Etsy account, you can also always find your patterns under You > Purchases and Reviews. The links do not expire.

If you purchased as a guest, the email receipt is the ONLY way for you to access the patterns. I recommend you link your guest purchases to your Etsy account. You can follow the instructions included on this page: https://help.etsy.com/hc/en-us/articles/115015663607-How-to-Check-Out-as-a-Guest-on-Etsy
