UPDATE: I realized this morning that I forgot the stitched picture of the shadow stitching technique on yesterday’s blog. Check the post after 11 AM Pacific 12/7/12 for the picture. My apologies.
Who doesn’t like a plaid?
This year delight the folks on your list by making them a quick and easy needlepoint tartan gift (they can be done in cross stitch as well).
With my assortment of charted tartans you can. You may have thought you needed to be Scottish to use a tartan, but that isn’t true.
As these pictures show. Your needlepoint tartan can be a last name, a country (great for different heritages), or a state. It can even just be colors or a pattern you like.
They are charted in full color with separate charts for horizontal and vertical stripes as well as a completed plaid chart, seen here, as a reference. Complete stitching instructions for your choice of techniques and a thread list are included.
Place them in a self-finishing ornament or accessory or add them to a tote bag and you’ll have a delightful gift. You can even make them more personal by adding a monogram in the middle.
The charts are just $15 and available immediately. You can see the entire collection of needlepoint tartans and buy them from the charted plaids page.
Buy your charted tartan today. Have a needlepoint tartan gift ready to go by next week.
