All About the Mousecapades!
Posted by Misty Pursel on
Mousecapades is a collection of seven adorable designs that will release throughout 2022. They can be stitched and finished separately, as you see in the model photos, or all together.
Complimentary Outer Border
If you’d like to stitch them all together, I have designed a complimentary outer border with suggested layout. Below is a peek at how all seven designs will look when stitched together with the outer border.
Download the complimentary border with suggested layout HERE.
Fabric: 32 count Smokey Pearl linen by Zweigart.
A Fat Quarter is large enough to stitch some designs separately or all of them together using my complimentary border (will give at least 2.5-inch margin on all sides).
Possible Fabric Alternatives if you don't stitch on 32 count linen:
- 32 count Slate Lugana by Zweigart.
- Snow Day or Faded Denim by Luminous Fiber Arts (I'll stock my hand-dyed blues as I have a chance to dye them)
With alternative fabrics, you might need to substitute a different blue floss in place of CC Blue Moon.
Sequoia Mini Pom Pom Trim: One pack will cover three of the small pillows or the one large pillow.
One skein of each over-dyed floss color will be enough to stitch at least a few of the designs. Your mileage will vary according to which designs you choose to stitch.
To stitch all of the designs with the optional outer border, you will need:
Classic Colorworks: Lettuce Leaf (2 skeins), Ribbon Red (2 skeins), Baking Tin, Blue Moon, Black Coffee
Weeks Dye Works: Kentucky Bluegrass (3 skeins), Pecan (2 skeins), Holly, Roasted Figs, Emerald
DMC: B5200 (2 skeins), 3326, 347, 3863, Ecru, 729, 3787, 648, 816, 680, 793, 738, 471, 470, 310, 12, 166
