Models are stitched on 40-count Beige hand-dyed fabric from Weeks Dye Works.

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

Weeks Dye Works Cotton Floss (DMC):
Aztec Red (3328) - 1 skein
Blue Jeans (931) - 1 skein
Carrot (722) - 1 skein 
Curry (3820) - 1 skein

Floss estimation is for stitching the sampler and ornaments as shown as directed on 40-count linen. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand over-dyed floss.

Package contains charting for the sampler, stitching instructions, complete finishing instructions for making each square into an ornament/scissor fob/hook hanger (backed by your choice of linen or matching fabric - two different finishing techniques).

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

Stitches:

Cross Stitch over-two linen threads
Back Stitch
French or Colonial Knots (minimal - scarecrow eyes only)

Finishing Supplies for ornaments/scissor fobs/hook hangers:

Matching fabric or wool felt (if not backing with linen)
DMC 6-strand embroidery floss (for twisted cord)
Fiberfill or cotton balls (for stuffing)
Kreinik Custom Corder (mini drill for making twisted cord)
Basic sewing supplies and iron

Original Verse:

FROLIC IN THE FOLIAGE
BENEATH AUTUMN SUN
THE COLORED LEAVES ARE FALLING
HARVEST HAS BEGUN

Be creative! There are many ways to "dress up" your ornaments (ribbon, buttons, trims) - look though an old sewing box or basket to find inspiring ideas and backing materials.

Each square would also work well for a floss ring tag, magnet, pinkeep, or needlebook...giving you lots and lots of options!
