Little Stitches Alphabet Collection Design

I love alphabets. So here is the new collection. In order to fit all the alphabets in small designs, guess what???? We will need to learn a new techique if you have not tried out stitching one over one thread on evenweave or linen. If you have never tried stitching one over one, I highly recommend evenweave 28 or 25 ct. I have stitched quite a few one over one projects and stitching on linen is still very challenging. Stitching one over one shows a lot of details. The collection has 4 designs, Emery, Mattress pinkeep, biscornu and pincushion. The Emery and Mattress pinkeep are stitching one over one. Biscornu and pincushion are stitching over two, but they can be stitched one over one. I use the new ThreadworX 10372 Kaleb's Cherry Patch and the fabric is Jobelan 28 ct Beige. The new tutorial for this collection is "mattress pinkeep".

Here is a link to my one over one finished stitching over the years:

Here are info about stitching one over one thread:

My preferred method is to complete each "X" as you stitch or do the "///////" and then \\\\\. It is not a difficult technique and you will be amazed at the end result.

Emery, Mattress pinkeep, stitching one over one thread:

Biscornu and pincushion, stitching one over two threads, the biscornu has a 6mm Pearlized Caramel Rose heart in the middle. The pincushion can be stitched as pinkeep as well.

The prices are as follows:

- PDF chart file with Mattress pinkeep tutorial $10.00

- Accessory pack $6.00

- PDF, Accessory pack, 18 X 27 Jobelan 28 ct Beige $22.00

The accessory pack includes 10 yards of ThreadworX, a covered button set, 3 pearlized Caramel hearts, and 2 1/2 yards of ribbon.
