Nativity Set #23 Empty Manger Applique Embroidery Design


The Nativity Set #23 Empty Manger Applique Embroidery Design is the twenty-third piece in our Nativity Set Series and was added to the set in 2018. It is not part of the original set and not included in the full set purchase. It was added by request for those who decorate their nativity set with the manger empty then add the baby Jesus on Christmas Eve. This manger is exactly the same as the one with Baby Jesus but does not include the baby. When finished the whole set of characters will coordinate together to make a banner, tree skirt, table runner or similar item. The feltie versions can be used for tree ornaments or felt board play sets.

For those who want to make an entire set in the same scale use the letters A-B-C-D as a base for the coordinating sizes and use all of the same letter to match the scale. There are some designs that have additional sizes available that may not be marked with a letter and are included as a bonus.

*Stitch Counts and Layouts may vary slightly with the different sizes and formats.
**The Feltie version uses the bean stitch instead of the satin stitch as the outline for making this design out of felt. There is a placement stitch that you should do first on the stabilizer. This is where you should place your base felt. Before each piece of “applique” there will be a placement stitch, to show where to place the fabric followed by a triple bean stitch, to tack it down. Trim the fabric close without cutting the stitches. The final outline stitch should be done after you place another piece of felt on the back of the hoop to cover all of your stitches. The final outline stitch is done in 2 pieces for if you want to stuff the design to make an ornament and hand stitch it closed or you can continue the very last piece to make it a felt design.
