Item details

Schoolgirl Samplings
BRD-092
Cross Stitch Design - Chart/Instructions only.
A sampler, pin pillow, needlebook and scissor fob - along with a unique stitched octagon-shaped box to hold them!

Stitch counts:
Sampler: 98H x 98 W

Octagon Box:
Box Lid (Top) - 100 H x 100 W (2)
Box Base (Bottom) - 94 H x 94 W (2)
4 Flat Walls of Box- 32 H x 35 W (8)
4 Slant Walls of Box- 32 H x 39 W (8)

Scissor Fob – 29 H x 37 W (2)
Pin Pillow – 26 H x 71 W (2)
Needlebook – 48 H x 100 W (2)

Sampler is stitched on 32-count Strawflower from Lakeside Linens.

Needlework Box and Smalls models are stitched on both:
32-count Strawflower (Outside Octagon Box and Front of Needlwork Smalls) and 32-count Sea Storm (Inside Octagon Box and Back of Smalls) hand-dyed fabric from Lakeside Linens.

To stitch the box and needlework smalls with model specifics, you will need:
12” H x 27” W piece of 32-count Strawflower ("LAND" - fronts of needlework smalls, outside of box)*
12” H x 27” W piece of 32-count Sea Storm ("SEA" - backs of needlework smalls, inside box)*

*Includes approximately a 2” allowance around the perimeter and 1.5" between each piece (diagram enclosed).

Model is stitched with Weeks Dye Works cotton floss (DMC equivalents provided):
Bluecoat Red (3328) - 1
Bright Leaf (3829) - 4
Carrot (722) - 1
Chestnut (938) - 1
Curry (3820) - 1
Deep Sea (930) - 2
Garnet (815) - 1
Mascara (310) -1
Ocean (3847) - 1
Peach (950) - 3
“Scuppernong (3364) - 3
Seaweed (3362) - 2
Tin Roof (3022) - 1

*Floss estimation is for stitching all five pieces (sampler, octagon box, three needlework smalls) using model specifics. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand-dyed floss. If stitching only the sampler, you will need one skein of each color except Tin Roof (Tin Roof is not used in the sampler).

Package contains charts for each of the five pieces, stitching instructions, complete finishing instructions for the box and the needlework smalls, and a worksheet area and 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
Back Stitch

Finishing Supplies:
2 skeins DMC six-strand cotton embroidery floss - 3364 (for twisted cord).
Matching ribbon (for needlebook and optional octagon box)
Matching Fabric (for lining needlebook)
Matching Wool Felt (for needlebook pages)
Cotton Batting (for needlebook)
Fiberfill or Cotton Balls (for stuffing scissor fob and pin pillow)
Skirtex or Easy Felt (for octagon box pieces)

KreinikCustom Corder™ (mini drill for making twisted cord)
Transparent Nylon Sewing Thread (for assembly of octagon box)

Fast shipping, everything great! Thanks!

I was impressed how fast it arrived here in Texas. The finishing instructions are very thorough. I feel that once it's stitched, I will be able complete it without much trouble. It will be my first project that I finish in anything other than a framed project.
