Add a little warmth and affection to your Valentine's Day stitching with the 'Hugs and Kisses' cross-stitch pattern!
Featuring charming XOXO motifs and a traditional Valentine palette of red, white, and pink, this quick and easy project is perfect for cross-stitchers seeking to infuse their stitching with the spirit of love. PATTERN DETAILS: The pattern calls for floss from DMC, Weeks Dye Works, and Classic Colorworks. DMC alternatives are provided for the specialty flosses. The model was stitched on 16ct black Aida. The stitch count is 42w x 34h, which stitches up to be about 2 5/8"w x 2"h on that fabric. The design is stitched using whole stitches only. The pattern comes with both a color format and a symbol format, so you can choose to stitch from the style the works best for you. It is a .PDF, so you can download and get started today! RECREATE THE LOOK: Wooden Tag and Finish Fabric: I used a pre-made white tag from StarryNightsStudio that came with the red and white gingham already on the board. You can find the tags in the company's Etsy shop. Cording: I used white cording from Merchant 41. The SKU is 829341. Bow: The red ribbon is from 5th Street Studio on Etsy. It is a 1.5" wire-edge royal burlap ribbon and the SKU is RG127805.
The button is a size 30 covered button by Dritz. To cover it, I used white and red scattered dot fabric by Kimberbell for Maywood Studios Fabric, SKU# MAS8210-WR.
