Wedding season is fast approaching, invites are coming through thick and fast and while some may rush to scour the gift register, we wanted to share a unique handmade gift for you to make for the happy couple.
Stitch up this wedding sampler, pop it in a frame and hey presto, you have a sentimental keepsake that anyone would love to receive.
Stitch count: 106h x 86w
Design size: 19.2 x 15.6cm (7½ x 61/8 in)
Threads: DMC stranded cotton (colours listed in chart key below)
Prepare your fabric for work. Follow the chart below and work over two linen threads (or one Aida block), using two strands of stranded cotton for cross stitch and one for backstitch. Change names and sew on the buttons and beads.
