Print the pattern for the little red sampler by double-clicking the image to enlarge it to full-size.
Work the solid colored squares in cross stitch using two strands of the six strand floss, and work the lettering in back stitch using a single strand of the six strand floss. The design is worked over two stitches on evenweave fabric, or over a single square on Aida fabric.
Once the stitching has been completed, the samplers can be framed or finished as ornaments.
