Floss estimation is for stitching the sampler and two smalls shown as directed (two strands of floss over-two linen threads) on 28-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 pin pillow, a template for the 5" hexagon (pin pillow), 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
Back Stitch

Smyrna Cross Stitch
Nun Stitch
