Stitch a wild garden full of flowers, funky houses and blazing sunshine.
Perfect for car trips, vacation craft or a simple getaway in a comfy chair. Turn it into a pillow (like this one from another design: http://housewrenstudio.typepad.com/charlotte/2010/10/back-to-the-pillow.html), sew it onto a tote or hang it on the wall.
This design is 5.5 x 9.5" with stitch lines printed on a 100% cotton panel measuring roughly 8.5 x 12". Just place it in your hoop and stitch with your favorite colors and stitches. I use a second piece of plain muslin behind the printed piece and stitch through both layers. It hides the backwork later. (This listing is for an unstitched print on cotton. You will need your own tools, floss and a few basic stitches like the back stitch. All my samplers are offered as unguided experiments in color and stitch preference. It does not include thread or stitch instructions.)
I framed mine with some cotton scraps and a patchwork border.
Some of the colors I used - all DMC perle cottons sz 8:
744 yellow and something else darker gold
580 leaf green
3348 light green
503 robin's egg blue
320 sage green
My favorite stitches are the spider web stitch, back stitch, daisy stitch, satin stitch, couching and lots of french knots! (google any of these for online how-to's.)
