WOW!!! This week is going to be FreebieWeek in MyBlog! I am going to design something connected to Finland for You all MyDearReaders! I also plan to design low cost projects so money is not a problem to make these FreebieWeek designs come true for yourself or as a gift.
This my own birch design could do just fine as a pen case, beauty bag or what ever comes into your mind. You need just 3 shades: black and 2 DMC Variegated shades. Calculated amount for green (DMC 125) is 11 meters but buy just 1 floss to see is it enough. The design is quite small so perhaps you can find 14 Count Aida from your left over box. See The Conversion Chart to find out which other fabric match with Aida 14 Count.
Why Birch design? Well, birch is a common tree in Finland. It has been a holy tree. It has been used in many ways during the years. Silver birch is Finland's national tree. There are enough reasons for Birch stitching!
