I was inspired to create ABC Tapestry while viewing antique tapestries during one of my museum visits in England. I wanted to create a modern-day tapestry using the entire alphabet with motifs to represent each letter. When it came to creating motifs to represent the letters, some letters were more of a challenge than others, but this project was fun to design and stitch.
Use the alphabet of individual mini samplers to create your own bellpulls as: personalize pieces, book covers, welcome banners and more! There are two extra sets of motifs to help fill your design.
The 30 page booklet is filled with large easy to read charts, "BE CREATIVE!" ideas and finishing instructions for the large tapestry.
Use any fabric and any color floss to create your own unique ABC Tapestry pieces!
FLOSS: I used DMC #3721. You will need approximately 1 skein of DMC floss to complete each letter and motif mini sampler. So please plan accordingly if you are using over-dyed floss since the yardage may vary.
DESIGN SIZE: ABC Tapestry 290 X 690, each mini sampler is 70 X 90.
FABRIC: ABC Tapestry Zweigart Belfast 32 ct. Linen, Antique Ivory
