DMC Six-strand Cotton Embroidery Floss: 948
Floss estimation is for stitching the sampler and the four bookmarks 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 charts for the sampler/bookmarks, stitching instructions, complete finishing instructions for the four styles of bookmarks shown, and a worksheet area with an 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 Back Stitch French or Colonial Knots (minimal - eyes only) Nun Stitch (#2 bookmark only) Satin Stitch
Finishing Supplies/Materials for Bookmarks:

Be creative! There are many ways to "dress up" a bookmark - look though an old sewing box or basket to find inspiring ideas!
