Patriotic Sampler
Designed by Jeannette Douglas
of Jeannette Douglas Designs

"Star Spangled happiness and banner waves of pride" -- When I saw these words I knew what I had to design. Funny how that is. Sometimes it is a fabric colour or a thread colour that inspires, sometimes it is nature itself and this time it was the words!

The pattern uses red white and blue silks to show off some great stitches including Bargello, Rhodes, Milanese, Satin, Scotch, Smyrna, along with the ever faithful cross stitch. Lastly the added patriotic coloured buttons and the Americana themed charms give the sampler the finishing touch.  

Note for Students: Students should have previous experience working on linen or linen-like fabrics and should be comfortable working from basic stitching diagrams and cross stitch charts. Students will need their favorite stitching tools or basic sewing kit (sharp scissors, ruler or tape measurer, writing utensil, extra needles, a hoop or Q-Snaps, etc.). If needed, students will need to provide their own additional lighting or magnification (remember, if bringing "plug-ins", please bring an extension cord).
