Christmas Crafts Harvest Punkin

contributed by Tiffany "Twigs" Carnal ©2002

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.

Dye stitchery with Coffee, Tea, or vanilla mixture & 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 paint the following.

Moon & Star: Dry brush with Antique Gold DA9

Outer edge of eye, Mouth: Dry brush with Buttermilk DA3

Dress & Crow: Dry brush with Lamp Black DA67

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