from City Stitcher
(10) Name: 'Embroidery : Petaldance

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cross Stitch

Pattern Description:

I love cross stitching but have been really frustrated with the lack of designs that are modern and relevant. I want to stitch projects that are fun and colorful and relate to my interests in fine art and pop culture and have a sense of humor whenever possible.

"Petaldance" has been adapted from an original abstract oil painting of mine when I was in a mood to paint something green. The finished product is perfect for framing (just remember to leave at least 2 inches on every side). Also folded in half I makes a great mini evening bag - just add a green lining and a decorative zipper pull.

Working with City Stitcher Charts

How to read charts: The design is presented in chart form. Each colored square on the chart represents on cross stitch.

Color/Symbol Key: The color/symbol key indicates the colors of floss to use for each stitch on the chart. All floss numbers listed by their color/symbol key corresponds to the DMC floss chart.

Working with the threads: DMC floss comes in a 6-strand thread. All stitches in this pattern use 2-strand threads. Please separate the thread into 2-strands for cross stitching this pattern

Happy Stitching! Sasha
