Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cross-stitch

Pattern Description:

If I was actually brave enough to get a tattoo, this is probably what I would get inked on my skin - as it is, I'm happy just to stitch it up - this is my motto!

This cross-stitch pattern comes with a full colour chart with floss legends in DMC, JP Coats, and Anchor, although of course all colours can be replaced as per the stitcher's preference.

This pattern is simple and suitable for beginners. We've included our best stitching tips for both beginners and more experienced stitchers and if you're completely new to the craft there's a good how-to video courtesy of Yarn Tree at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mr_LfGr1v0E
