Floss estimation is for stitching the sampler and four smalls shown as directed (two strands of floss over-two linen threads) on 32-count fabric. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand-dyed fibers.

Package contains charting for the sampler and four needlework smalls, stitching instructions, stitch diagrams, complete finishing instructions for the needlework smalls, and an alphabet/numbers for personalization.

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

Stitches (diagrams for all stitches are provided):

Cross Stitch over two linen threads
Back Stitch

Smyrna Cross Stitch
