Show off your stitch library in this modernized version of the classic sampler.
As this is an ‘advanced’ pattern for more experienced stitchers, there is no how-to for any of the stitches. I have included suggested stitches, but please do exercise your own artistic license if you know any better ones! Any how-to I would provide would pale in comparison to those already published. I would particularly recommend Search Press’ A – Z of Embroidery Stitches for a more comprehensive guide to advanced sewing techniques.
Included with your pattern is a key explanation for each stripe of the sampler. Remember to consult this before you begin stitching! Please note that the Ecru coloured squares on the pattern chart itself are there entirely for illustrative purposes, and should not be sewn. They are solely there to represent the white background Aida.
All patterns are designed with DMC floss on 14 count Aida. If you want to stitch onto a larger count Aida (16-18ct) your finished work will be a smaller size. Feel free to adjust the colours according to your taste, and backstitch if you wish.
If you feel this pattern is a bit too detailed for you and would prefer a simpler chart, please browse my other Beginner and Intermediate patterns.
Before you proceed to payment, you will be asked to pick which letter you need, which I will then email to you, along with your key.
The patterns are designed by Stitch Disco and are for personal use only. Selling on of finished items is expressly prohibited.
