Assisi Pincushion Doll

This is my fourth design for a pincushion doll and I really enjoyed stitching it with the fabulous The Thread Gatherer threads over the wonderful linen by Manifattura Tessile Sotema, Italy.

This model is dedicated to my lovely niece Giulia, with hugs and …lots of love!!!

Chartpack includes original linen fabric, stitching and finishing instructions, and threads conversions for DMC and WDW cotton threads. Even though the final result might be slightly different from the original, WDW cotton threads give a better match with the original model as compared with DMC threads.

Instructions for stitching and finishing the matching bookmark are also included.
