Have you ever wanted to try canvaswork, but the size of the piece or expense of materials changed your mind? This small piece will introduce you to some of the basics of canvaswork, without a lot of expense or complexity. The model is shown worked on 18 ct. white mono canvas, but a larger count will work equally well. The design uses just 2 colors of cotton floss and 1 color of #8 pearl cotton; the model uses DMC cotton floss 208 and 210, with DMC #8 pearl 208. The instructions and stitch diagrams are extensive, so you can do this on your own if a class is not readily available.

This is my go-to stashbusting ornament. I have recommended it to many people. I have taken a class where it was taught, and everyone’s was different and lovely. The chart is very well written and is actually a booklet. I highly recommend this ornament. One of my all time top favorites. I wish I could give more than 5 stars .
