Inspired by the fashions of the 1900s to 1920s, this mini cushion design captures a group of Vintage Ladies in a variety of styles and costumes including a wife at home, ladies in the park, a maid, a flapper, a lady ready for bed in her nightcap, a young lady with ringlets in her hair and another young lady in a sailor suit.
This design features biscuit colours with an almost 'tea-stained' look, giving it that vintage feel.
This cross stitch kit includes: 14HPI white aida fabric, ready-sorted DMC threads on a card sorter, needle, black velvet backing fabric, b&w symbol chart (including a separate backstitch chart) and full instructions (cushion filler not included).
Design size: 14.7cm x 14.7cm (5¾" x 5¾")
The joy of stitching this design is that the main features only start to appear once the backstitch is added after all of the cross stitch is complete.
(Photo below shows all cross stitch completed, prior to adding backstitch)
There are two charts included in this kit as there is a lot of backstitch, so a separate backstitch chart has been included to make it even easier and more fun to stitch.
Only whole cross stitch is used, with a great deal of backstitch detail. Note, the backstitch follows the natural holes in the aida fabric so no need to worry about 'piercing' the aida or stretching across stitches.
