Shaker Carrier Base (or framed design) – 111 H x 152 W Handle Wrap - 56 H x 62 W (2) Owl Pincushion - 59 H x 57 W (2) Needlebook - 82 H x 50 W (2)
Models are stitched on 30-count Parchment hand-dyed linen from Weeks Dye Works.Fabric cut for 30-count: 17" H x 26.5" W - Layout diagram included.
NOTE: All measurements for finishing supplies, finishing instructions, and templates are designed for 30-count linen. If you adjust your linen count, you will need to make the necessary adjustments to the finishing measurements/templates.
Floss estimation is for stitching all pieces shown as directed (two strands of floss over-two linen threads) on 30-count fabric. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand-dyed fibers.
Package contains charting and complete finishing instructions for the carriers base, handle wrap, needlebook, owl pincushion, and flower scissor fob - along with stitching instructions, stitch diagrams, wool felt/fabric templates, and an alphabet/numbers for personalization.
I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.
