Dragonfly Alphabet

Graceful dragonflies and pink waterlilies adorn the cursive letters of this cross stitch alphabet. There is an attractive balance of colors between the aqua, green and turquoise of the dragonflies contrasting with the bright pink touches of the water lilies.


You can stitch the ABC as a whole, or you can use individual letters as initals, for personalizing projects. The decorative letters will look good stitched on napkins for instance. Once stitchedd, each letter is less than 2 inches high x wide on 14ct Aida (28ct evenweave). You can also cross stitch letters on an Aida band (30stitches high) and apply to any textile item.


The projects uses metallic threads for extra highlights, 2 metallic yellow for the wings, and one dark turquoise for their bodies.


Initials will look really great on ready-to-stitch bathroom towels, and make perfect gifts for a couple or a family. In this case we would suggest replacing metallics with stranded cotton so you can wash at high temperature.

Pattern only includes full cross stitches (no fractionals).
