From Monday all the way through to Sunday, these vintage Days of the Week Workbasket Embroidery for Brownies are just so cute! Today’s Friday Brownie is hard at work shining the sugar bowl.
I think she’d be even cuter as a Christmas Elf, shining Santa’s sleigh ready for his yearly flight delivering toys to the children of the world.
Sketching in a Christmas tree to replace the carrot in last week’s pattern probably isn’t as challenging as drawing Santa’s sleigh so I’ve found a few images to help you out.
You may need to adjust the size of the two sleighs linked above or you could try your hand at drawing your own from this page on How to Draw a Sleigh.
And just like the other Brownies, rather than a Christmas Elf, this one could be turned into a helpful fairy by the simple addition of a tiny pair of wings.

WELCOME TO STITCHERY LINK PARTY #121
For those who are newly subscribed or are visiting for the first time, every Monday I host a link party in which I invite others to share their hand embroidery projects.
If you’ve never linked up to a link party before and would like to join in, I’ve written a quick tutorial on How to Link Up to a Link Party. It provides step-by-step instructions for linking to this party (or any other link party you might like to participate in.)
The rules for the Stitchery Link Party are simple:
- The project can be anything as long as it includes hand embroidery stitches in some form. Such projects might be but are not limited to redwork, blackwork, goldwork, bluework, (etc), counted cross-stitch, crazy quilting, crewel, silk ribbon, pulled thread, hardanger and sashiko.
These projects do not have to be vintage or vintage inspired. All styles are welcome as long as it’s hand embroidered.
- Link directly to your blog post, not to your blog home page.
- If you happen to sell your embroidery or embroidery patterns, feel free to link up to a blog post you’ve written about a project you’re selling, but No direct links to shops or websites selling things.
- This will be a curated link party. In other words, if a link does not conform to the three simple rules above, it will be removed.
The next three are more requests than rules. They are by no means a requirement to take part in the party:
- Please link back to the Stitchery Link Party with a text link somewhere in your post.
- As well, please share the love and visit one or two (or more) of the other links and take time to leave a comment.
- It would be wonderful if you decided to follow me but it’s not necessary in order to take part in the link party.
