My Circles Sampler Pillow Pattern is a modern take on an old-fashioned sampler. It is worked in Crewel Embroidery using wool thread and linen fabric. The design features 15 circles of varying sizes. Each circle is different - they are like miniature color and stitch studies. The design uses 26 different embroidery stitches. None of them are too difficult to learn. Twenty-six stitches are included. This project is designed to be an add-on project to my Craftsy Crewel Embroidery Class - Stitch It with Wool. Although I teach some of the basic stitches on Craftsy, in this pattern you will learn 12 exciting new stitches. There are complete and clear illustrations of How-To Stitch the 26 stitches needed. This 26 page PDF pattern includes: Complete how-to illustrations and words for each of the 26 stitches 71 How-to illustrations Close-up photos of the 15 individual circles - it will be easy for you to re-create the design! A full-size photo design template to transfer to your fabric using tracing paper, light table, or Sulky transfer pens Complete listing of Appleton Crewel Wool Thread Colors Used BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic embroidery skills SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 16 x 16" square
