Floss estimation is for stitching the sampler and two smalls shown as directed on 40-count linen with one strand of floss over-two linen threads. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand-dyed threads.
Package contains charting for the entire sampler, stitching instructions, and complete finishing instructions for making each square into a flat-finished ornament or treat bag.
I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.
