Scout Sampler Cross Stitch or Embroidery



Here is another cross stitch chart I have put together, based on a vintage design. You could use it for embroidery, too. 

I saw this as an embroidery sampler and fell in love. It's so cool. There is just something about the muslin and embroidery thread... it makes me imagine a young girl sitting by lantern light with a hoop and needle and thread. I'm sure they aren't quite that "vintage", but that's my vision.

I have wanted to make it for some time and it's still on the list to stitch. I do, however, have the chart marked now. I just have to figure out if I want to do this as cross stitch or embroidery. We'll see what happens.

Be sure to read the color key... the colors I used for the chart are not the correct colors for the design, though, you could swap them out for your faves or all green would looks great, too. 

I did the page breaks on this design 2 ways, because... well... some of us aren't as young as we used to be and a bigger chart is easier on the eyes. :)

If you decide to tackle it, please let me know! Enjoy!

  1. Very impressive! I love to cross stitch and have always wanted to try to design a pattern. I'd love to try this sometime.
