Soap 'n Water
This is a cute design that has been in our children's and baby selection of patterns for quite some time. I think it's a classic! *I love soap 'n water... makes me smell just like I ought'r!*
There's a little cowboy underneath the bubbles in a metal washtub... at least he remembered to take off his precious boots! The stitch count is 100 x 96, and the chart is coded for Sampler Threads of Barn Gray, Buckeye Scarlet, Black Crow, Cameo Pink, Sarsaparilla and white, along with a bit of opalescent to highlight the bubbles.
The suggested background fabric color is a light blue, so choose whatever count you like. I think this is perfect to hang in a little boy's bathroom!!!
Wow... this is CREATIVE! I have never seen a scissor case quite like this -- and it is CHARMING!!! Offered in chart format, you get compete instructions and the chart to stitch this witch hat that doubles as a scissor case. Worked on a mangy gray linen, it is finished 3-dimensionally, and features DMC Memory Thread inside to give the hat band the stability to stand out. Can you see the little spider? He is hanging on there by a bit of Kreinik opalescent #4 braid -- it's his web! He is stitched over one thread, and features tiny beaded legs. Then, he has a super strong magnet in his body to cling to the scissors stored in the hat! Unbelieveably cute, he swings all over the place on his web-string!
The whole hat finishes approx 4-1/2 x 5, and is perfect for any black scissors you have. VERY UNIQUE, the model is quite impressive!!!!! I don't think it's hard to DO... I just love the fact that Susan could imagine and create this unique piece! A Stitched Trophy!
Oh My Gosh... Haven't I always wanted to stitch a big 'ol buzzard??? This little guy is just the cutest! He's almost 7 inches tall... and is perched on a STITCHED branch! Worked on the front and back, his beak opens to reveal felt needle pages. It has a strong magnet in there... and it clings to the scissors stored on his backside -- so his mouth is tactfully closed to gossip! See the leaves hanging from the branch? Those are handmade clay leaves... hung on there with beaded vines!
This whole thing is an exercise in creative needlework and finishing! Stitch this little guy and perch him among your pumpkins for the fall... put him onto a wreath... stick him to the frig... hide him on a bookshelf so anyone who is really studying your books will stumble upon him... ENCHANTING! (And he's a darn CROW!!!!) Offered as the chart with those clay leaves!
