Floral motif and border inspired by the traditional Bulgarian embroidery.
Size: 47×47 stitches
Thе "Bulgarian Embroidery" pattern is fairly small and can be stitched in a day or two. It is recommended to use 14-count Aida cloth. Count is determined by the size of the fabric weave and measures how many stitches can be made in one inch. At 14-count, the finished pattern will be about 3⅜×3⅜ inches or 8.5×8.5 centimeters. Remember to include additional space around the margin of the Aida cloth.
Floss: 4 colors
Very Dark Coffee Brown
4 different colors of DMC floss are necessary to complete the "Bulgarian Embroidery" pattern. An approximate conversion table is provided for other brands of floss such as Anchor, J&P Coats, Gamma, Ariadna, Madeira and Puppets. The conversion table is provided just as a reference since the chart is specifically designed for DMC floss.

Everyone has a hobby or two, you do it everyday, or use it everyday and you love doing it. I enjoy creating my own cross stitch patterns and sharing them with everyone who likes this hobby. Happy stitching!
