This little piece is packed with lots of motifs for our favorite past time. Measuring a mere 1.8" square I've stitched this one with silks from Classic Colorworks.
Choose your favorite threads - just two related colors plus the background - and you're good to go. Our model is framed in a bitty frame that is really pretty with the silks, but think about making this into a little needle book too!
Both the original Petites version and the Classics designs are now available in a single chartpak (which does not include silk gauze).
