SSD-WTC17                     Traditional Tin Soldier

5/8” w by 2 1/4” h    - 9 stitches w by 31 stitches h

Cross-stitch design “Traditional Tin Soldier”
depicts a toy from the top
of the Christmas wish of yesteryear,
and it still reminds us of the Holidays today.  
The tin soldier is embellished with shiny gold accents
on his red and blue suit and
he is wearing the traditional matching tall hat.  

The image is on a pre-finished oval
ready to be finished to be decorative on both sides
(with detailed finishing instructions provided)
and hung as a decoration
after a ribbon is laced through
the lace edge of the medallion.  
The ribbon provides a unique accent to the motif.

While the design may be stitched
onto the pre-finished oval and used as an ornament,
it may also be stitched onto a small piece of fabric,
or by using waste canvas,
it can be applied to fabric or apparel.

Pre-finished 2 3/4” x 3 1/2”, 14 count
Aida ovals with lace edges from:
