Stitch counts:

Sampler – 136 H x 165 W
Scissor Fob – 26 H x 50 W (2)

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

To stitch all four of the needlework smalls with model specifics, you will need a 14” H x 13” 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):
Barn Gray (414) - 1 skein
Chives (469) - 1 skein
Fragrant Cloves (921) - 2 skeins
Lavender Potpourri (3835) - 1 skein
Ohio Lemon Pie (3821) - 1 skein
Onyx (310) - 2 skeins
Picket Fence (White) - 1 skein
Picnic Basket (839) - 1 skein
Tomato (920) - 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. Package also contains and enlarged chart of the trick or treat faces (minimal one-over-one stitching) along with an alternative chart of the faces (with no one-over-one stitching).

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

Stitches (diagrams provided):

Cross Stitch over two linen threads
Back Stitch
Colonial or French Knots (minimal)
Satin Stitch Border (around the box containing the large ghosts)
