Christmas Crafts Ole Jack Stitchery

contributed by Tiffany "Twigs" Carnal ©2003

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'.

1 strand if it is very small detailing.

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

Punkin Stem: Backstitch with Dmc Floss # 838 Very Dark Beige Brown

Outer circle of eyes: Backstitch with

Dmc Floss # 613 Very Light Drab Brown

Nose, Mouth & center of eyes: Backstitch with Dmc Floss # 310 Black

Punkin: Backstitch with Dmc Floss # 400 Dark Mahogany

Words: Backstitch with Dmc Floss # 729 Medium Old Gold

Vines: Backstitch with Dmc Floss # 319 Very Dark Pistachio Green

Button Eyes: Stitch buttons for eyes with matching thread.

Fabric Dyin'

Dye stitchery with Coffee, Tea, or vanilla mixture & let dry.


I only use Deco-Art Paints

I only use the following Loew-Cornell Fabric Brushes.

Loew-Cornell, Series 225: ½, ¼ (to fill in majority of the coloring)

Loew-Cornell, Series 224: ¼, ½

(for those tight areas or side by the stitches)

Loew-Cornel, Series 227: 0, 2 (for the details)

If you choose to color your stitchery, use a dry-brush method to paint the following.

Stem: Dry brush with Light Cinnamon DA114

Cheeks: Dry brush with Rockwood Red DA97

Outer circle of eyes: Dry brush with Buttermilk DA3

Nose: Dry brush with Lamp Black DA67

Punkin: Dry brush with Terra Cotta DA62

O & J: Dry brush with Antique Gold DA9

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