Poppy Needlework Accessories
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY MARIE-ANNE RETHORET-MELIN
These poppies come alive as you stitch as if they they had just sprung from a field of wildflowers.
Designer Marie-Anne Réthoret has a real talent for composing charming - yet easy to stitch - patterns that will delight you from start to finish. Plus there's the fun mounting to do using the biscornu technique. No sewing involved. Every bit fits perfectly into place as you whipstitch your way along the lines of backstitch and put together the three items.
The chart includes patterns for a scissor case, a scissor fob and a biscornu serving as a pin cushion
