This year's homage to snow and ice is called "Winter."
Winter comes as a .PDF pattern. The design features a snowman who is replacing the letter I in the word Winter. Our snowy friend is dressed in a scarf and hat. Snowflakes and mittens complete the scene. The design is stitched in shades of red, black, white, brown, and orange. PATTERN DETAILS: The model was stitched on 14 ct. Vintage Country Mocha Aida (Zweigart) using 2 ply thread.
The stitch count is 89w x 38h and the finished design measures
approximately 6 1/2"w x 2 3/4"h when stitched on that fabric.
The pattern calls for whole stitches only.
The model was stitched with threads from DMC and Weeks Dye Works. DMC equivalents are given for the specialty fibers. The pattern includes both a black/white symbol page as well as a color page, so you can choose to stitch from the format that works best for you.
WHERE TO BUY RECREATE THE LOOK: Finish Fabric: The red/black checked fabric is from the Branded line from Sweetwater for Moda. It is currently out of print. Cording: I spun the cording using 6 full strands of DMC B5200 using my Kreinik cording drill. If you don't want to make your own, an alternative might be to use pre-made white cording (3/16"). Hobby Lobby carries some. Their brand is Merchant 41 and the SKU is 829341. Bow: The black ribbon is from 5th Street Studio on Etsy. It is a 1.5" wire-edge royal burlap ribbon and the item number is RG127802. I sealed the ends with fray-check. (Affiliate Amazon link.) The snowflake button came out of my stash, so no SKU--sorry! I feel pretty confident it was a seasonal item at Walmart, and that I found it in the craft section. The materials listed above are unique to this piece. The foundational supplies (the board, glue, batting, etc--stuff you can't see) are the same no matter what I am finishing. I use backing board, Aleens Tacky Glue, and Warm and White Craft Batting. I make cuts with a rotary cutter on a rotary cutting mat. You can see them along with links on the Tools/Organization page. One more time, here it is. Hope you enjoy!
