Sampler Maker from With My Needle

    Ellen tells us "This sweet little sampler can be attached to an antique wooden bobbin, framed, or made into a pillow. Perhaps you have other ideas. I hope you’ll change the girl’s hair, eye, and skin colors to match your own. Perhaps you might also want the change to color of her dress to your favorite color."

    Charts are included for three slightly different sampler versions of various dimensions. Antique bobbins vary in size, so instructions guide you to match one of the charts with fabric of the necessary thread count so that your sampler will fit your bobbin. (The bobbin used on the model is 8 inches tall. The bobbin barrel (rod) is 7 inches long and has a circumference of 5-3/8 inches, but bobbins of other dimensions can be used.)

    Model was stitched on 36 count Pecan Butter linen from Lakeside Linens and stitched with silk threads from Needlepoint, Inc. and Gloriana. DMC substitutions are given.

    Stitch Count:
    Bobbin Version 1 is 93 wide x 120 high
    Bobbin Version 2 is 87 wide x 120 high
    Bobbin Version 3 is 87 wide x 104 high

    Stitches Used: cross stitch and backstitch. Four-sided, closed herringbone, and Symrna cross stitches are optional. If attaching your sampler to a bobbin, you will also use eyelet and nun’s stitches.

    Stitch diagrams, detailed stitching directions, and bobbin assembly directions are provided.

    Please check the boxes above to add the chart, linen and threads to your order.
