Finishing Ideas
I finished the design as a small pillow. I then added a buttonhole stitch around the outer edge. I finished that with a crochet edge and a scallop pattern. 
You could also make small pincushions like I did by just using the flower motifs from the design.
Happy Gardening , donna



Les Fleurs Chic

Les Fleurs Chic Suggested Retail $12.00



*Model Stitched on 28ct Antique White linen over (2) by Wichelt Imports
Stitch Count 138 x 182
14ct or 28ct linen 9.85 x 13
16ct or 32ct linen 8.63 x 11.38
18ct or 36ct linen 7.66 x 10.11
*If stitched on 14ct Aida or 28ct linen this fits perfect in a 11 x 14 frame.
* PLEASE NOTE that the appliqué patterns are sized for a 14ct Aida or 28ct linen over 2
This is one of my designs that I made to add wool appliqué to a cross stitching project. I just love the tans, beiges, and white shades so I designed this to incorporate all of the things that are so fresh and clean. 

If you do not like appliqué then don’t be discouraged because I have included the directions for both cross stitching the whole design or trying both cross stitching with  appliqué flowers.

I have included the wool source that I used but you can be creative by choosing your own wool that would match a room in your home. Just pick 3 shades of any color to make it your own. How about changing the color of the vase, an over dyed green would be nice (another of my favorite colors)
You could try cross stitching the whole design on a small count linen

I always use 3 strands of floss on 28ct so I needed extra
