Pansy, Dogwood Blossoms.

Needlepoint embroidery, something different—a new idea—in hand-work! The stitch is nothing more or less than half cross-stitch. The motif when finished looks somewhat as though woven right into the fabric itself. You work across in rows, covering each line with a stitch. This simple stitch lends itself well to a highly shaded flower, such as the pansy or to a flower with fewer colors, such as the dogwood. The designs are suitable for lunch sets, luncheon cloths, scarfs, pillows, towels, etc., and may be used effectively on white or colored backgrounds.

SUGGESTED MATERIALS—Lunch sets and lunch cloths may be made of linen or cotton with a smooth linen finish and pillows, of cotton, linen, silk or smooth upholstery fabrics. Be sure to choose materials with a smooth surface, as the short lines of this design will not stamp well on materials with a rough surface. Six strand cotton should be used for the embroidery. The colors used in the pansies are purple, red violet, lavender, vermillion, blue green, yellow green, yellow and white. The dogwood may be done in white, shaded with pink, or in pink shaded with rose. Other colors required for the dogwood are green and brown.

Hibiscus Chart Pattern

Hibiscus Chart Pattern

Pattern includes transfer designs for two cross-stitch florals, lily and hibiscus, for pictures or pillows. Designs are to be worked in 5-to-inch cross-stitch plus French knots for lily. See directions for colors, amount required and manufacturer's color numbers of six strand cotton.

MATERIALS REQUIRED: ⅝ yd. of 52" wide smooth natural, ivory or cream linen or cotton with a linen finish will make two pictures or pillows. Use ⅝ yd. 35" or 36" fabric for one picture or pillow, 1¼ yds. 35" or 36" for two. If making pillow cover, use boxed inner pillow 18" or 20" square. Buy enough contrast fabric for back and sides of pillow and for corded welting. Cut cover 1 " larger than finished pillow to allow for ½" seams.

CROSS-STITCH: Cut fabric 22½" wide x 25" high.  Turn under raw edges ¼" and edge stitch. Using contrasting thread, baste along the stamped corner angles and from center line to center line through the design both ways to divide it into quarters. Using a colored pencil, mark leaflet through center of design both ways. Follow leaflet charts for placing colors. Use full six strands of six-strand cotton in needle. In working cross-stitch it is important to have the crosses of the entire design crossed in the same direction. See detail. Keep stitches even by having them touch, putting the needle in the same hole used for adjoining stitch.

TO BLOCK DESIGN: Cover a large board with clean paper and mark size of fabric (22" x 24½") on the paper. If embroidered piece is soiled, wash. Place wet piece (right side up) on board, pull edges of fabric to meet guide lines drawn on paper. Thumb tack all edges of fabric to board, placing tacks ½" apart. Allow to remain until thoroughly dry.

TO MOUNT AND FRAME: Mount the embroidered piece by stretching over stiff cardboard cut 16⅞" wide x 17⅞" high. When stretching be sure to keep design perfectly straight and centered. Drive straight pins through fabric into the edges of cardboard, keeping fabric straight. Paste the edges of fabric down on wrong side or use masking tape. Illustrations show the picture framed in a 17" x 18" frame with a 1⅛"-1½" wide molding.
