Ruler Fob – 23 H x 43 W (2)
Pinkeep - 40 H x 66 W (2)
Needlebook – 63 H x 128 W (1)

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

To stitch all four of the needlework smalls with model specifics, you will need a 14” H x 13” W piece of 40-count linen (diagram for layout included) - this is with a 1" seam allowance and 2" between pieces - you may wish to cut a larger size for additional working space. Chartpack contains cut sizes for alternate fabric counts.

Model is stitched with Weeks Dye Works cotton floss (DMC equivalents provided):

Weeks Dye Works Cotton Floss (DMC in parenthesis) followed by number of skeins:
Bordeaux (3685) - 1                                  
Begonia (600) - 1
Curry (3820) - 1
Hazelnut (433) -1
Ivy (3364) - 1                                              
Kris' Bon Bon (938) - 1     
Peoria Purple (3746) - 1
Pumpkin (721) - 1
Seaweed (3362) - 1
Sky (3755) - 1
Sweetheart Rose (604) - 1          
Whitewash (White) - 1

Floss estimation is for stitching all five pieces as directed on 40-count linen with one strand of floss. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand-dyed threads.

Package contains charts for each of the five 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.
