Stitchery Directions

by Tiffany "Twigs" Carnal ©2002

This stitchery is approx. 8 1/2 X 11


Muslin: Cut 1 layer of muslin 16x10 inches & 1 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 brushing 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.
