Sampler – 135 H x 152 W Scissor Fob – 31 H x 43 W (2) Pinkeep – 47 H x 47 W (2) Needlebook – 53 H x 93 W
Models are stitched on 40-count Wood Smoke hand-dyed fabric from Lakeside Linens.
To stitch all three of the needlework smalls with model specifics, you will need a 15” H x 11” W piece of 40-count linen (diagram for layout enclosed). Chartpack contains cut sizes for alternate fabric counts.
Weeks Dye Works Cotton Floss: Curry (3820) - 1 skein Garnet (815) - 2 skeins Hazelnut (434) - 1 skein Holly (890) - 2 skeins Hunter (986) - 2 skeins Liberty (321) - 1 skein Snowflake (B5200) - 1 skein
Floss estimation is for stitching all four pieces as directed on 40-count linen. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand over-dyed fibers.
NOTE: To stitch the sampler only, you will need one skein of each floss color.
Package contains charts for each of the four pieces, stitching instructions, complete finishing instructions for the needlework smalls, and a worksheet area and alphabet for personalization.
I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.
