If you find yourself dreaming of castles and knights and princesses from time to time (and dragons too, of course!), we've got the perfect cross stitch pattern for your next project. Step into a land of "Once Upon a Time" with this fairy tale sampler full of imagination and whimsy.
This design measures 236 stitches wide by 92 stitches high. It is printed in a multi-page leaflet, 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. This pattern also calls for a skein of Weeks Dye Works overdyed fibre. The artists/designer for this piece is Jennifer Aikman-Smith, who says, "While some may think that Fantasy tales are nothing but childish and escapist... I firmly believe that they keep us in touch with that inner sense of wonder we all have as children."
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.
