Floss estimation is for stitching the sampler and several ornaments as shown as directed on 40-count linen. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand over-dyed floss.
Package contains charting for the sampler, stitching instructions, complete finishing instructions for making each square into an ornament/scissor fob/hook hanger (backed by your choice of linen or matching fabric).
I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.
Stitches (diagrams provided):
Cross Stitch over-two linen threads Back Stitch French or colonial knots (minimal - door knobs only)
Finishing Supplies for ornaments/scissor fobs/hook hangers:
Matching fabric or wool felt (if not backing with linen) DMC 6-strand embroidery floss (for twisted cord) Fiberfill or cotton balls (for stuffing) Kreinik Custom Corder (mini drill for making twisted cord) Basic sewing supplies and iron
Be creative! There are many ways to "dress up" your ornaments (ribbon, buttons, trims) - look though an old sewing box or basket to find inspiring ideas and backing materials!
