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 Scissors

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
