Christmas in July Santa's Ride Bowl

My second Christmas in July project.  Started in July, finished in early August.


This a a free standing lace bowl from BFC Creations called Santa's Ride.  This is an expensive set for an embroidery design, but it seems to be 70% off a couple times a year.  So if you like it, just wait for a sale price before paying full price.

I made it in the largest size they have.  It is very stitch intensive as it is viewable on both sides so top and bobbin thread must match.  They stitched out very nicely.

I think the panel with Santa is my favorite.  Loved the bright colors.

All panels stitched out as well as the bottom panel.  I rinsed the Santa panel first, which makes the color look a shade darer than the others.  Then I read the directions which indicated that the bowl should be stitched first, before rinsing the stabilizer out.  Should have read all the instructions, but it wasn't a big deal.
All panels stitched out

The panels are joined using a regular zig zag stitch with matching thread on the sewing machine.


Each side panel is attached to the bottom panel first, then attached to its side neighbors.

One done you have a big floppy bowl.  😄
I rinsed the entire bowl under the faucet and draped it over a towel over a small lamp. Let that dry completely.

I sprayed a bit of Best Press and ironed it smooth once it was dry.

Ready for Christmas!

Happy Stitching!
