This is a "The Life Aquatic" inspired item. You are purchasing a PDF pattern in which to cross stitch your own Steve Zissou portrait and quote from one of Wes Anderson's funniest films. I am a huge Anderson fan!! This is a simplistic design requiring only 7 thread colors. I recommend working with a size 24 tapestry needle on white Aida. This pattern was designed for 14ct Aida and the finished image will be approximately 6.93 "W x 11.07"H or 97 stitches W by 155 stitches H. You may choose a different thread ct, but the finished size will vary. The example photos show an approximation of what your finished piece will look like as well as a close up of the PDF pattern you can instantly download after your purchase confirmation. I am happy to walk anyone through a cross stitch project, please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. I am also happy to edit the file if you prefer it in black and white or expanded over additional pages. Again, what you are purchasing is an instant download PDF cross stitch pattern. Thank you for looking and Happy Stitching!!! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Cross Stitch needlework embroidery SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 6.93" W x 11.07" H or 97 W x 155 H stitches

I'm a transplanted Bostonian with a BFA from Mass College of Art and a background in Illustration before that from the Art Institute of Boston...a small, private Art School not to be confused with the other Art Institutes that are in large cities around the US. While my first loves are painting and printmaking, I have also over the course of my life enjoyed playing with thread. I would stitch furiously for a few months then drop it and get busy with other things only to pick it up again a few years later...which is where I am now and how I happened onto this website. I am obsessed with cross stitching and hope to learn the techniques necessary to create more of my own patterns. Thanks for stopping by. ~Jeannie
