I stitched my model on 40 count linen- 1 over 2. And along with some basic cross stitches- you’ll find a little bit of back stitching- which in all honesty- you can use straight stitching too. Do what’s comfortable for you and have some fun
One more note, as you get to the color chart/key, I highly suggest my favorite colors- shown- in the Gentle Arts and Weeks Dye Works Threads!!! I charted the design using DMC, and then marked down my Overdyed Thread choices next to the DMC colors. By all means- this is all yours and you, so have some fun with colors!!!
Finishing for this chart is entirely up to you… But I’ve included some pics of my finishing them into candle jar wraps- by simply measuring the diameter of my jars- adding ½ an inch and then using basic rough prim stitches and adhesive Velcro- to turn them into removable and interchangeable wraps.
I did very prim stitching on my fabrics- and I fused my finished stitched piece to a piece of my favorite fabric- leaving all rough edges showing. The fabric behind the stitched piece was just slightly larger than the stitched piece- and I only hand stitched a hem- on both left and right ends.. Very very simply primitive. Just be sure to leave enough linen on either side of your pattern to get the length you need to wrap around your jars – if you use this method.
Please note!!! I don’t wish for anyone to “adapt” this cross stitch pattern into any other pattern on their own, as it is my design and I will be releasing future patterns using this, including a punch needle design and possible a hooked rug pattern. If you’ve any questions regarding this- please do let me know…. & Please respect all copyrights.
Last thing, before you get stitching- is that if you’d like to order linens, threads, just send me an email, visit me online, and/or find me on Facebook!!! I sell and carry almost all supplies used for each pattern I make…
And again- if you ever have any questions- please just get in touch with me!!!
Thanks So Much & Happy Stitching!!!
