Materials and Tools
Fall Pumpkin requires the following materials. However, cross-stitch is a personal journey, so feel free to deviate and bring your unique touch to the design with your preferred materials!
Fabric: I used black 14-count Aida, but choose what suits your style and decor.
Threads: DMC is my absolutely go-to for floss, but of course, you can choose the brand you love most. There are a number of online tools that will convert the numbers to the brand of your choice.
- DMC 740 – Tangerine
- DMC 780 – Topaz ultra very dark
- DMC 700 – Christmas Green bright
Embroidery Hoop: Hoops are totally optional. I have always used a hoop, but I tried going without for this project and it turns out I really like it!
Highlighter or Marking Pen
Magnifier or Light
