Stitched on 18 ct. mono canvas, this geometric design lends itself to other colors than the blues and greens shown.
This design is a terrific beginners project if you haven’t stitched on canvas before and want to give it a try, the stitches are not hard to learn and the piece works up quickly.
Stitches are Diagonal Satin Stitch, Tent Stitch, Rhodes Stitch, and Rhodes Star.
Fibers are Overture, Ribbon Floss, Pebbly Perle and Nordic Gold.
You’ll need your regular stitching supplies for this piece plus a ruler, thumbtacks, pencil and a laying tool. The kit will include all fibers, canvas, needle and instructions. Your kit will include 8” X 8” stretcher bars at an additional cost if you need them.
