Moonlit Midnight

  • $14.00

Charting for a cross stitch sampler, three ornaments/fobs, and three pins/magnets.

Stitch counts:

Sampler – 178 H x 121 W
Stitch counts for needlework smalls vary upon motif chosen.

Models are stitched on 32-count Tundra hand-dyed fabric from Lakeside Linens.

Models are stitched with Weeks Dye Works cotton floss (DMC equivalents provided):

Weeks Dye Works Cotton Floss (DMC):
Carrot (402) - 1 skein
Curry (3820) - 2 skeins
Havana (829) - 1 skein
Onyx (310) - 4 skeins
Peoria Purple (333) - 1 skein
Schneckley (832) - 1 skein
Scuppernong (580) - 1 skein
Seagull (646) - 1 skein
Sweet Potato (301) - 1 skein
Whitewash (B5200) - 1 skein

Floss estimation is for stitching the sampler and smalls shown as directed (two strands of floss over-two linen threads) on 32-count linen. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand over-dyed floss. For best results, I strongly suggest using the Weeks Dye Works cotton floss.

Package contains charting for the sampler and smalls, stitching instructions, stitch diagrams, complete finishing instructions for ornament/fob and pin/magnet, and numbers with an area to personalize the year.

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
French or colonial knots (minimal)
Smyrna Cross Stitch
Long Straight Stitches (broom only) 

Finishing Supplies for smalls:

Matching cotton fabric (back of ornament/fob and yo-yo for pin/magnet)
Fusible lightweight interfacing (ornament/fob and pin/magnet) 
DMC 6-strand embroidery floss (ornament/fob twisted cord)
Kreinik Custom Corder (mini drill for making twisted cord)
Flying Needles Finishing Form Set: 2" Square (1 set per ornament/fob) 
Dritz Half Ball Cover Buttons: Size 45 - 1 1/8" - item # 213-45 (pin/magnet)
Your choice: pin back or magnet (pin/magnet) 
Basic sewing supplies and iron

Each section will work wonderfully for pillow ornaments and/or needlework smalls...or make a small framed piece by using only several of the boxed motifs.

Attach the yo-yo with stitched button cover to a barrette or headband for a darling hair accessory!

Be creative! There are many ways to "dress up" your ornaments/fobs/magnets/smalls (ribbon, buttons, trims) - look though an old sewing box or basket to find inspiring ideas and backing materials!
