Free garden cross stitch gift tag pattern
Stitch this gorgeous and exclusive gift tag cross stitch chart, designed by Susan Bates, for green-fingered friends and family
Whip up this quick-stitch gift tag in just an evening with this free gardening cross stitch pattern. It's perfect for beginners as it only measures 13 stitches high x 18 stitches wide. The finished design will measure 2.5x3.5cm (1x1¼in) when stitched on to 14 count aida (28-count evenweave). This design was stitched using DMC stranded cotton but the chart includes Evenweave and Aida thread scodes too.
It's perfect to go with the 'Summer Patchwork' project in issue 219 of The World of Cross Stitching!
