Materials and Tools
This pattern requires the following materials.
Fabric: This pattern was designed using 14-count Aida as the fabric. You can choose any colour you like, but white or a very light fabric would be best to ensure there is no colour showing through under the white threads.
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 BLANC – White
- DMC 310 – Black
- DMC 792 – Cornflower Blue dark
- DMC 157 – Cornflower Blue
- DMC 793 – Cornflower Blue medium
- DMC 972 – Canary deep
- DMC 818 – Baby pink
A note about the threads in this pattern. You can choose NOT to use the white thread if you use a white Aida cloth. You could even change the colour of the scarf and hat! Stitch up Percy’s sister Poppy for a sweet pink and blue combo!
Highlighter or Marking Pen
