God Bless Ewe Stitchery

Pattern Directions


Muslin: Cut 1 layer of muslin & one layer of Warm & Natural. You may wish to use 2 layers of muslin, or flannel or a layer of felt, to give it that extra layer to where you don't have your stitchin showing through.


Trace pattern onto top layer of muslin, using a mark b gone pen.


I use 2 strands of Dmc floss for all my stitchin'.

*NOTE: if you are going to be dry bushing your stitchery to be colored in, stitch detailed items such as eyes, noses, plaids on dresses, stars on flags, & words on dresses after you have painted that specific area.

Spray stitchery with tea or coffee & let dry.


I only use Deco-Art Paints .

I use Royal Golden Taklon Brushes:

Deer foot series 650 Size 1/4" 1/2" (use to dry brush)

If you choose to color in your stitchery do the following.

Using a dry-brush method as listed in Twig-Niques,

paint the following.

Stars: Dry brush with Antique Gold DA9

Blue part of Flag: Dry brush with Deep Midnight Blue DA166

Leaves & Grass: Dry brush with Hauser Dark Green DA133

Sheep: Dry brush with Buttermilk DA3

Stripes on Flag: Dry brush with Rockwood Red DA97

Now you are ready to either sew your stitchery into a pillow, wall hanging or
frame in a picture frame.


You may wish to cut out of wool-felt and appliqué sheep onto a pillow.
