Get ready for the most wonderful time of year--Sparkle Season! Show your love for some of the best things about the winter holidays with this quick-to-stitch pattern. Your completed pattern also makes a great gift!
I designed this pattern on 14 count Aida. If you complete this on 14 count Aida, the finished pattern will fit nicely in a 6" hoop or a square 5" x 5" frame.
Approximate finished sizes: 14 count: 4.28" x 4.28" (10.9 cm x 10.9 cm) 16 count: 3.75" x 3.75" (9.5 cm x 9.5 cm) 18 count: 3.33 " x 3.33" (8.5 cm x 8.5 cm)
This patterns uses mainly cross stitches but does include some 3/4 stitches and backstitches.
I used silver metallic floss (DMC E415) with the electric blue floss for the word "sparkle." It can be difficult to work with metallic floss so I recommend looking online for tips. Most recommend using a thread conditioner like Thread Heaven and working with one strand at a time. I also used the metallic floss for the two small snowflakes. Using this kind of floss is optional. I think it makes the word "sparkle" stand out , but if you prefer to not use it, you may want to outline the letters with a backstitch like the other words. Or even use a different color altogether. Same for the snowflakes, they could look great with an icy blue color as well. You can always experiment with other colors for the other elements as well, make it your own!
