The Mojo Sampler
Stitch count: 62 high by 92 wide. Design size on 28ct fabric: 4 1/2 inches by 6 5/8 inches (please add at least 6 inches when cutting fabric, for framing/finishing)
Start with a piece of even weave fabric, either cotton or linen. Then choose five stranded threads, 3 tones of one colour (I chose greens) and 2 of another (I chose pinks). Add some seed beads to tone, and away you go!
This wonderful piece is crammed full with speciality stitches - over 30 of them! - each one carefully and clearly explained and diagrammed. You have options to personalise your sampler, again with instructions on how to do this, and there are even instructions for finishing the sampler as a box-topper or tin-topper. It would also look wonderful framed, as the front flap of a bag, or how about leaving it in a scroll frame and hanging this in your favourite stitching place?
To give you a taste of stitches used - Four-sided, Pagoda, Tied-Windmill, Vandyke, Rhodes heart, Jessica, Norwich, Colour-Change Chain, Whipped Spiderweb Rose, Sorbellpo, Queen, Portuguese Knotted Stem, Sprat's Head, and many others!
The PDF comes in either UK/A4 format or US/Letter format - the information is identical in both formats, but should you wish to print your PDF you may find it helps to have the correct format for the paper your printer uses.
Fantastic value for money, this learning sampler is a fabulous way to add to your stitching skills and have a really unusual sampler, unique to you, to show for it.
