Basil, The Bulldog
This is how your long stitch project will look when complete.
Basil, The Bulldog:
This is how your long stitch diagram will look (without the color text) when printed. The design will print out 6 pages, letter size, portrait view.
You will need 3-ply persian yarn in the following colors:
Medium Brown (Eyes)
Medium Dark Tan
Peach Flesh (Toe Nails)
Ivory or Off-White (Background color)
This project is worked on 10-mesh Mono Canvas. Once you have printed the design, simply place the canvas over the diagram and trace the image onto the canvas. (Helpful Hint: If you have difficulty seeing all of the lines of the diagram when it is under the canvas, outline the diagram with marker before attempting to trace it.) When complete, this project will be 20" x 16" actual size. The dog is worked in Long Stitch. You will be able to see where the long stitches begin and end in the diagram. Visit the Long Stitch page for specific instructions on working the stitch. The background is worked in Brick Stitch. Use Ivory or Off-White for the background color. Visit the Brick Stitch page for specific instructions on working the stitch.
Click on the PDF file, above. This will open the file. Choose the print icon (it will look like a printer) in the pdf area of the window. Note: Do not print from the "file" menu. This will not work.
IMPORTANT: When the PRINT window opens, check the box marked "Choose Paper Source By PDF Page Size". If this box is not checked, you will lose part of the design.
