Dropcloth Sampler - Heart Ornaments
Dropcloth Samplers are designed by US based textile artist Rebecca Ringquist. A dropcloth is something that you can get messy, without worrying about making mistakes.
Introducing the Heart Ornament Sampler! An embroidery sampler that when complete you can sew into four festive holiday ornaments, perhaps with customized messages of love on the backside. This sampler includes four heart panels for you to embroider by hand. Rebecca used back stitch, running stitch, satin stitch and french knots, but you can choose your own stitches to suit your own taste. For best results, she recommends using 3 strands of embroidery floss or size 8 perle cotton in your needles.
Instructions aren’t included but can be found in most embroidery books, in Rebecca’s online classes, or why not get a friend to show you?
Includes one sampler.
Measures 9" x 9".
You can use any perle cotton or embroidery floss for your sampler – a great way to use up old scraps! Or try some of our Paint Box Threads!
