Cross Stitch Table Set
Flowers Centre Pattern This design was used for a tray cloth, but it would also look ideal in the centre of a table cloth, edged with the corner motif and border patterns. The pattern can be widened and lengthened by adding more of the pattern repeats. We chose to work this design in pink to match our other pieces, but why not choose your own colours to match your decor. DMC COLOUR KEY Pink Version 367 Green 760 Pink 725 Yellow Tray Cloth was worked in cross stitch using three strands of thread on 26 count Ecru Linen. When stitching was complete, the cloth was edged with cotton lace and placed inside a wooden tray that was sanded, stained and sealed with polyurethane. Flower Border & Corner Motifs DMC COLOUR KEY Pink Version 367 Green 760 Pink 725 Yellow DMC COLOUR KEY Blue Version 904 Green 792 Blue 742 Yellow placement was worked in cross stitch using two strands of thread on Ecru 14 Count Vinyl Fabric 38 cm x 26 cm (15″ x 10″). The edges were trimmed one square away from the flower pattern and nine squares away from the remainder of the border. The diagonal border pattern was repeated on the bottom left hand corner of the placemat. Servette Ring was worked in cross stitch using two strands of thread and the Pink Colour Key on Ecru 14 Count Vinyl Fabric. The complete borer pattern was used, but prior to stitching the side edges, overlap your vinyl and stitch through the two thicknesses. The vinyl was trimmed three squares away from the stitching on the top and bottom edges, leave enough vinyl on one side edge to join the serviette ring together. Salt Shaker was worked in cross stitch using two strands of thread and the Blue Colour Key on Ecru 14 Count Vinyl Fabric. The complete border pattern was used and was trimmed three squares away from the cross stitchng. A back stitch border in yellow was also worked on the top and bottom of the border.
