Instructions:

  1. Each square on the chart equals two fabric threads. Work all stitches as per chart/color key. When couching flourishes of Star Blue, work twin scrolls first, then couch center scroll over the top.
     
  2. To make the laid threads for couching the horizontal bands, twist six 12-inch lengths of Very Fine (#4) Braid 091 Star Yellow using the Kreinik Custom Corder. Repeat twice to make two lengths, following manufacturer’s instructions that come with the corder. The outer trim is also made using this tool, by twisting together five 36-inch lengths of Kreinik 1/8” Ribbon 195 Sunburst.
     
  3. When stitching and trim are complete, use pattern and instructions provided with Stik N Puffs to finish ornament. Hanger is an 8-inch length of 1/8” Ribbon 195 Sunburst. Ornament is backed with the remaining Stik N Puff and unworked Alma Cloth.

Where can I purchase the oval stik n puffs to make the Easter Egg project?

I am looking for small stuffed dolls to dress. About 7 or 8 inches. Also cross stitch patterns for small fairies, to be used on Christmas ornaments. Dorothy
