I decided to try something new when designing this stocking. I stitched the eagle on a black Aida to resemble a high top moccasin but I wanted the name on a lighter background color so I combined both. I divided the pine cones and pine branches chart in half horizontally and stitched half on each color of Aida cloth, then I “sewed” both top and bottom together by matching up the stitches as shown in the chart and using a backstitching motion on the reverse side. This was not nearly as difficult as I anticipated, it was quite simple in fact. When the pieces were joined I used straight stitches to form the pines needles which covered up the seam line quite nicely. Finished size is 13″ x 17″ (33.02 cm x 43.18 cm) stitched on 14-count Black Aida cloth and 14-count Fiddler’s cloth.
Full colored package label; stitching charts with symbols and backstitching/topstitching lines based on design complete stitching instructions including symbols and color blocks for embroidery floss used and illustrated instructions to form the stitches used, personalization alphabet chart, assembly instructions and a supply shopping list including the DMC name and yardage amount of each color of floss used.
