How much fabric do I need?
To calculate the amount of fabric you will need for your project, divide the number of stitches by the stitch count of the fabric you wish to use. The higher the count of your fabric, the smaller your piece will be. Some examples appear below. Remember to leave several additional inches as a border on each side, to facilitate framing your project when it is finished.
Is the background stitched too?
|Fabric count||Approximate size |
of stitched area
|14-count||6 1/4" × 7"|
|18-count||4 3/4" × 5 1/2"|
|25-count||3 1/2" × 4"|
Nope. The only stitching you'll have to do is on the dragon's face. All those lovely colors in the background of the model come from using a hand-dyed fabric for this project. And that's something that is entirely up to you. Since this is a pattern only, and not a kit, you can choose whether you want to use a plain fabric for the base, or if you want to spice things up a bit with a specialty fabric.Can I get this as a complete kit?
Nope. Sorry but we only sell printed patterns. You will need to provide your own floss and fabric for your project.Can I get this pattern as a download?
I'm sorry, but we only offer physical patterns at this time. We do not sell downloads of these patterns.
