Directly from Italy, we love this collection of monochromatic designs... jewelry, seasonal, and lovely hearts from Livia and Paola Rovaris. All presented in chart format, although everything is stitched in red -- you KNOW you can change any colors you wish!!!
A Scissor Sampler
Rovaris of Italy has a cool piece -- it's the alphabet done in white against a natural background, then garnished with all sorts of scissors stitched in DMC 815 red.
Actually quite large, the stitch count is 130 x 430 -- finishing approx 8 X 27 on 32ct! You could change up the colors a little, stitch just your name and add the scissors you like the best to that and make a sewing room sign. Make a pin cushion with just one initial and one scissor motif.
Nobody says you have to stitch the entire thing if you don't have that much energy! It's just a pretty chart, we thought it was cool.
4th Of July Pillow
I love that little July 4th pin mattress! Two charts in here, one makes the 75 x 50 mattress, the other the 100 x 45 pin cushion, using DMCs of white, 815 and 813.
These would be pretty worked in hand-dyed flosses instead, but stick with the natural colored linen so the white color shows up against the material. Presented as the chart, it comes with 14 white star buttons. We have a few of those cute little felt heart scissor fobs as well!
Felt Heart Scissor Fobs
Approx 2 x 2, these are hand-made scissor fobs with a clam-shell attachment clip for your scissors. MOST are red, white and blue; we have a few yellow and tan ones... the little puffy heart is stuffed and garnished with a scissor charm.
Sewn to two more bits of felt, then threaded together with a thread-wrapped mini-spool, a bow, and a flower button... each fob is slightly different, but most measure about 5 inches long. Cute as can be!
More Love Hearts What a stunning pair of designs by Rovaris of Italy! A new trio of hearts -- each of these is presented in chart format -- and offer simple elegance! All are stitched in DMC 815 red... but you could choose any solid or hand-dyed cotton or silk you wish.
On 32ct, they finish approx 9 x 9, give or take a few stitches. One of the shop gals does these over one (a little over 4 x 4 on 40ct)... and they would be lovely as needlework mounted next to a wedding invitation in a double-opening presentation. Or... just the way they are!
What a stunning pair of designs by Rovaris of Italy! Offered in chart format, each heart is simply Cross Stitch in #815 DMC floss. Stitch counts are almost identical -- the stacked trio design is 155 x 144. They don't have names, and I am sure you could work them on most any count -- and choose most any pretty hand-dyed thread you wish. I just think they are sophisticated and very unique for our marketplace, so I delighted in buying them!!!
