Long Road - Cross Stitch Pattern
This pattern has two pages. The first page shows a full color photo of the stitched design. The second page contains the actual chart. The chart is black and white for easy reading, and is in large print. Colors are identified through symbols in the chart, which are also listed in the legend with the DMC color names and numbers. There are brief instructions that include how to sew the Aida fabric into a bookmark. The finished design can also be framed for mounting on the wall or sitting on a bookshelf.
When prepared as a bookmark, the available stitch count should be 34 x 110, regardless of the fabric count. The stitch count of the design is included in the pattern, as well as the stitch area for 14-count, 18-count and 20-count. Prepared bookmarks for 14-count should measure 3" x 9" and 18-count should measure 2 1/2" x 7". (Premade bookmarks are available for purchase separately.)
All designs are stitched before they are made available for purchase. This is because colors reflected on a computer screen often look different when actually stitched. Colors are often changed during the primary stitching to ensure the colors properly match and blend. The photo of the finished design has been stitched and is not computer-generated.
This item is a digital pattern for a DIY project. After purchase, the pdf file is available for download and/or printing.
