With her usual touch of whimsey, Jennifer Aikman-Smith of Dragon Dreams has created another winner. Text reads "LOST- one little dragon with a long, slithery tail. green, shiny scales, sharp, white teeth, sparkling wings, and gleaming claws. If found, please tell it that I am not too grown up to still believe!"
If you are a dragon lover (and who isn't?), this pattern will give you the perfect excuse to play with specialty stitches and fibers. What better way to expand your embroidery repertoire!
This dragon cross stitch sampler measures 70 stitches wide by 140 stitches high. It is printed on 7 unbound pages, with a color picture of the completed design on the cover. The chart is graphed in black and white symbols. A table showing the DMC colors you'll need is included.The instructions are on unbound pages, in a ziplock bag for protection.
This is a pattern for counted cross stitch. It is not a complete kit. You will need to supply your own fabric and floss. We are not able to offer digital downloads of our patterns at this time.
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.
