2021 Tea Cup Stitch Along - Subscription
CROSS STITCH AND BLACKWORK PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Lesley Teare Designs
Available as a subscription, Lesley Teare's exciting new SAL will be released monthly in 12 parts throughout 2021. It features 12 delightful china tea cups with a new cross stitch chart becoming available each month.
The design layout is elegant, with elements of symmetry, but each of the cups is different. Birds, flowers, bees and butterflies give the pattern a lively touch.
The cross stitch chart includes small areas worked in backstitch, revealing the designer's love of Blackwork. The design also includes French knots (which you can substitute with seed beads) as well as some fractional stitched for detail (cup handles).
Get a head-start and downoad both legend and frame chart now. The chart includes the cross stitch frame as well as guide lines for positioning the cups. We suggest you cross stitch the cross stitch frame ahead of time and baste the guide lines to save time and avoid any errors when cross stitching each new tea cup.
