AND, if you have this...

Select HDF floss: Premium: Skeins
     Skeins / Micros      Minis
     Single Strand      6 Strands

The stitched area will be inches wide by inches high

The fabric should be inches wide by inches high

I suggest using a size tapestry needle

For backstitching, I suggest strands of floss

If using 1 strand of floss over 2, you will require approximately skeins or yards of HDF floss.

Note: For 2 over 2, double this amount.

You will require approximately:

  • 1 6SR skein = 8.7 yds
  • 1 SSP skein = 52.2 yds
  • 1 SSR micro = 52.2 yds
  • 1 SSR mini = 150 yds
Notes: Use the Tab key to move between fields.
Extra fabric for border is the distance between the stitching and the edge of the frame.
Extra fabric for finishing is the amount of fabric allowed for mounting or sewing.
