Floss estimation is for stitching all eight ornaments (full size) with model specifics. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact matches for hand-dyed floss.
Finishing supplies for all eight ornaments (as shown):
DMC six-strand embroidery floss for twisted cord: 8 skeins - 221 (one skein per ornament)
Weeks Dye Works Wool Fabric - 1 Fat Quarter - 1333 Lancaster Red
Kreinik Custom Corder™ (mini drill)
Basic sewing supplies
Piece contains cross stitch over-two linen threads and cross stitch over-one linen thread.
I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.
About the design: This is the first set of "letter" ornaments; "Green Letter Ornaments" (BRD-062) is also available.
For a smaller ornament, stitch the center square without the border. The smaller ornaments stitch up quite quickly and are perfect for gift giving. They are also a great size for gift tags.
