Here's a sister project to the Birthday Ballooms, Easter Egg, Hannukah Dreidel, and Halloween Pumpkin Petite Fours! This miniature project is quick to stitch using the full-color chart and was inspired by the work of talented needlepoint artist Melissa Shirley. It can also be worked in cross stitch.
Finished Size: Approximately 1 inch x 3/4 x 1.5 inches
Canvas Size: 8" x 7" piece of 18 holes-per-inch canvas
Threads Needed: #5 Pearl Cotton in white, green, yellow, red, blue and yellow and light brown
Using Pearl Cotton instead of yarn gives the illusion that the project is beaded rather than stitched due to the sheen. You can easily substitute single plies of Persian wool in this project if you prefer.
