Cross Stitch Chart AND Button - Gingerbread Village: Gingerbread Girl and Peppermint Tree.
Includes Handcrafted Gingerbread Cookie Button
The Gingerbread Village series consists of 11 designs. The first design, Gingerbread Train, is larger than the rest (stitch count of 110w x 60h). The remaining 10 designs are all the same size (stitch count 55w x 60h). If the entire design is stitched together it has a total stitch count of 220w x 184h.
The fabric used for the models is Wichelt’s 32 count Lambswool Linen. The designs also use the same threads throughout. If all of the designs are stitched, a total of these many skeins of floss will be needed: Classic Colorworks’ Bean Sprout (2) and Ribbon Red (2). Weeks’ Hazelnut (3) and Pecan (5). DMC White (4), 3371 (1), 469 (1), and 741 (1).
There is a handcrafted button used in each design. Keep in mind that the buttons were chosen to fit with the 32 count fabric, so if you choose a different fabric count they may not fit the design as well.
The Gingerbread Village series will look adorable finished separately as cubes, stand up flat folds, ornaments, etc. If you choose to stitch the entire series together as shown, the first design in the center will be Gingerbread Train. Then we will be moving a block over to the left for the next piece, and then continuing clockwise around the entire piece. You can look at the rendering above for reference. The blocks that are next to each other horizontally are stitched right next to each other with no spaces in between. There are two stitches however, in between the rows vertically.
