Halloween with a "Y"

  • $14.00

Stitch counts:

Sampler – 77 H x 308 W
If doing smalls, each box has a stitch count of 77 H x 60 W. 

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

Models are stitched with The Gentle Art Sampler Threads (DMC equivalents provided):

The Gentle Art Sampler Threads (DMC conversion):
Barn Gray (169) - 1 skein
Burnt Orange (921) - 1 skein 
Chives (469) - 1 skein
Fragrant Cloves (920) - 1 skein
Gold Leaf (729) - 1 skein
Maple Syrup (3021) - 1 skein
Picket Fence (B5200) - 1 skein
Raven (310) - 3 skeins
Tarnished Gold (612) - 1 skein

Floss estimation is for stitching the sampler and two smalls shown as directed on 40-count linen with one strand of floss over-two linen threads. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand-dyed threads.

Package contains charting for the entire sampler, stitching instructions, and complete finishing instructions for making each square into a flat-finished ornament or treat bag.

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

Stitches (diagrams provided):

Cross Stitch over-two linen threads
Cross Stitch over-one linen thread (minimal)
Back Stitch
