"The Three Wise Men"



This ornament is one in a series of six ornaments called "The First Noel". I used a small piece of 40ct Summer Khaki from Zweigart® cross stitching one over one. You can use most any snippet of linen, in any count, from your stash. This ornament looks just as rich on 28ct over one as with the 40 ct. To make this heirloom Christmas ornament as realistic as possible a large variety of DMC shading is required. When stitching smalls I use a small scroll frame because it’s light weight and easy to handle. In the package you will find the pattern, color chart with symbols, instructions, beads, and a camel charm.

Other items needed to finish pattern:
About 15in. of Gold Cording and one small tassel
Acid Free Mat Board or Cardboard
Solid Color Backing Fabric (I used Deep Blue Velvet)
