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

To stitch all four of the needlework smalls with model specifics, you will need a 13” 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 The Gentle Art Sampler Threads (DMC equivalents provided):

The Gentle Art Sampler Threads (DMC conversion):
Aged Pewter (169) - 1 skein
Black Raspberry Jam (3750) - 2 skeins
Blue Spruce (500) - 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 threads.

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.

Cross Stitch over-two linen threads
