Through The Trees

  • $13.00

Charting for a framed design, scissor fob, and pin pillow.

Stitch counts:

Sampler (Framed Design) – 122 H x 178 W
Scissor Fob - 32 H x 32 W (2)
In Pillow Insert - 28 H x 40 W

Models are stitched on 32-count Tundra hand-dyed fabric from Lakeside Linens. Alternative fabric choices: 30-count Weeks Dye Works Dolphin (a little darker grey) or 30-count Weeks Dye Works Dove (a hint more green). 

Models are stitched with Weeks Dye Works Cotton Floss (DMC equivalent provided):

Weeks Dye Works Cotton Floss (DMC) - 5 yard skeins - 1 skein needed unless noted:
Carrot (922)
Graphite (414)
Grasshopper (732)
Hazelnut (420)
Kohl (310) - 3 skeins
Rust (300) - 2 skeins
Sweet Potato (920)
Whiskey (3821)
Whitewash (White)

Floss estimation is for stitching the sampler and two needlework smalls shown as directed (two strands of floss over-two linen threads) on 32-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, and an alphabet/numbers for personalization.

I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.
