All models are stitched on 40-count Buttercream hand-dyed fabric from Lakeside Linens.

To stitch all four of the needlework smalls with model specifics, you will need a 12” H x 14” W piece of 40-count linen (diagram for layout enclosed) - this is with a 1" seam allowance and 2" between pieces - you may wish to cut a larger size for additional working space. Chartpack contains cut sizes for alternate fabric counts.

Model is stitched with Weeks Dye Works cotton Floss (DMC equivalents provided):

Weeks Dye Works Cotton Floss (DMC conversion):
Bluecoat Blue (3765) - 2 skeins
Bluecoat Red (3328) - 1 skein
Bright Leaf (3829) - 1 skein

Floss estimation is for stitching all five pieces as directed on 40-count linen with one strand of floss. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand-dyed fibers.

Package contains charts for each of the five pieces, stitching instructions, complete finishing instructions for the needlework smalls, and a worksheet area and alphabet for personalization.

I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.
