Item details

*Please note this is NOT a finished cross-stitch product. This is a PATTERN so you may make your own.* Upon purchasing this product, Etsy will email you the digital file I have created for this pattern.

This is a framed cross-stitch containing words of wisdom from Leslie Knope of NBC's Parks and Recreation: "Ovaries before brovaries."

.PDF, 4 pages:
- Page 1 is the pattern. It is roughly 60x60 squares. The pattern includes a ruler along the top and left side, as well as darker grid lines every 10 squares for much easier counting.
- Page 2 includes DMC threads, thread per stitch recommendations, and information on the model image. It also includes credits, rights, and information about me.
- Page 3 is a close-up of the flowers with symbols to assist those who may have difficulty seeing the colors in the pattern.
Page 4 is a close-up of the back-stitching detail in the flower.

- Inspired by a quote from NBC's Parks and Recreation (season 2, episode 2: "The Stakeout").
- Finished product will vary in size, but using 16 ct. Aida cloth, it will fill a 5 1/2 inch cross-stitch hoop (as seen in my photos).

This is a very simple pattern with little to no cross-stitch experience required! I paid special attention to make sure that anybody could download this file and know how to make this product themselves.

If anything in the file is unclear, or if you have issues with the file, please contact me! I am just getting this shop started and I want everything to be perfect for my customers.

Additional policies

According to the Etsy Terms of Service, I am obligated to disclose that I own another shop on Etsy called JenniferLightAndDark (www.etsy.com/JenniferLightAndDark) where I sell my art. I created this cross-stitching shop because I thought it would be easier to separate and organize my two crafts.
