Pattern - Turtle Birthday Wishes Cross-stitch Greeting Card

  • Note
  • 1. Stitching on perforated paper is as easy as stitching on Aida. Unless designs are over two holes, it is not possible to stitch designs with quarter stitches; however, backstitching is easy. The special perforated paper for stitching is durable but keeps stitches at an even tension which avoids distorting the holes.
  • Turtle Birthday Wishes
  • 1. Stitch design centered on perforated paper.
  • 2. Backstitch as follows: DMC 898 - (1X) turtle; DMC 898 - (2X) words.
