The Hapsburg Lace Snow Flake Sampler is an intermediate canvas work design.

The lacy stitches are worked in Perle cotton on 18 count mono canvas. It is an easy technique, great for all level of stitches and can be worked in the hand in your most comfy chair (no frame necessary). It is also a good project to take with you when you are traveling as it is easy to pick up and put down without losing your place and without having to deal with lots of different threads.

The Hapsburg lace technique gets is name from a Lady from the Hapsburg dynasty who developed the style, selecting the most lacy canvas stitches to mimic real lace in the form of needlework.

The Hapsburg lace patterns are worked from a chart and the instruction booklet in the kit has lots of step-by-step diagrams and instructions on how to work each pattern.

The individual snowflake patterns make great greeting cards, you have the option of purchasing an extra piece of canvas to make greeting cards or a second sampler as the spool of thread will make two samplers.

To get nice holes at the center of the eyelets without having to pull hard on the stitches (which can distort the canvas) I suggest using a brass stiletto…..enlarge the hole in the canvas prior to stitching the eyelet.

The sampler fits nicely in to a 5 1/2 inch bell pull.

I am offering free on-going critique with this kit…..you can email me at any time if you have questions or would like me to critique your embroidery.

I offer this design at a lower cost for groups.

Purchase pieces of 18 count mono canvas for your own designs.

The Large Yazzii Craft Organizer is my favourite case to store my needlework supplies.

I use this case at home and whenever I go traveling to teach or on holiday as it holds a lot of supplies but is soft and stuff-able for the suitcase.

The case has 8 zippered compartments with durable see through panels.

Size: 9 1/2 inches by 7 inches by 3 1/4 inches (24 cm by 17 cm by 8 cm)
