Gather Supplies


Before you can start your project, you will need to gather some basic supplies.

1/4 yard of white fabric, cut into 4 six inch squares leaving you some extra to practice with – my favorite is Kona cotton (can be found at Hobby Lobby, Joanns, and Hancock Fabrics)


4″ embroidery hoop – you only need one to stitch, but if you want to hang them on the wall grab four.


DMC thread in the following colors: 606, 720, 729, 3774, 3847

Patterns and instructions (Download them here if you haven’t yet)
