These Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) cross stitch designs by Tiny Modernist feature a bird, cat, and sugar skull with colorful flowers and decorative elements. The cross stitch pattern includes charts for all three designs.
The models were stitched on 14-count black Aida, but you could also use 28-count black linen. To frame in a wood hoop, be sure to leave at least 3 inches extra fabric on each side. The designer recommends fabric cut at least 12" x 12" for the skull, 10" x 10" for the cat, and 9" x 9" for the bird.
The chart is sold as a hardcopy printed pattern that will be shipped to you. Purchase the optional thread pack, and we will include 14 full skeins of DMC floss plus a complimentary tapestry needle!
