(This listing is for a downloadable cross stitch chart in PDF format, which you will need to download and print prior to use. It is not for a finished project of any type, nor does it include any of the other supplies - such as fabric, floss, and needle – that you will need to stitch the design.)
Inspired by Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel THE HANDMAID’S TALE (and its subsequent screen adaptations), this original cross stitch design features an abstract portrait of a handmaid (perhaps Offred herself) accented with simple block lettering and two linear borders.
Charted entirely in full cross stitch (no partial stitches!) with a bit of basic backstitch, the design measures 37 stitches wide by 58 stitches high – which works out to just over two and a half inches wide and just over four inches high on 28-count natural/raw linen (stitched over two) – and would make a great addition to your home or office décor or a thoughtful gift for a fierce and faithful friend.
The color image above shows how the design would look using the fabric and floss specified in the pattern.
Your chart will be available for download in PDF format immediately after your payment is processed.

Have a wonderful day, and happy stitching!
