Floss estimation is for stitching the sampler and two needlework smalls shown as directed (two strands of floss over-two linen threads) on 30-count fabric. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand-dyed fibers.

Package contains charting for the sampler and two needlework smalls, stitching instructions, stitch diagrams, complete finishing instructions for the scissor fob and snippet receptacle/ort box, 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
Cross Stitch over-one linen thread (personalization only) 
Back Stitch

Satin Stitch
Smyrna Cross Stitch
