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

Package contains a master chart, an enlarged chart printed on four pages for easy viewing, and a worksheet area with alphabet/numbers for personalization.

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

Stitches (diagrams provided):

Cross Stitch over two linen threads
Cross Stitch over one linen thread (used for personalization only)
Back Stitch
French or Colonial Knots (used only for mermaid and crab eyes)
Fishbone Stitch (border)

The motifs would work great for magnets or scissor fobs
