The Sewing workshop
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Perrette Samouiloff
Here's a tribute by Perrette Samouiloff to all things needlework and the joys of creating with fabrics, threads, ribbons, trimmings, buttons, needles and pins!
The design includes miniature haberdashery treasures such as the series of four antique needle holders or the wooden reel holder with a central pin-cushion. Also notable are the two sets of cards, each holding 3 or 4 different tartan ribbon motifs, while the larger wooden reel holds a checkered motif.
More treasures include 12 fun buttons in various colors and shapes including even a hedgehog, as well as appliqué motifs and red trimming with ribbons and bows.
The lady at the top is busy working on her sewing machine, her work in progress exposed on the four mannequins, while a delighted young gril tries on a new dress. Another woman is unfolding large swaths of fabric, finding it hard to decide which one she wants to pick. Children are having fun too, threading beads or using a ribbon as a jumprope.
This very detailed cross stitch chart comes with extra clear charts and special zoom parts to help you work the intricate detail. It is certainly well worth the effort as the stitched piece is awsome.
