Missal of Leofric Cross Ornament

Suggested retail $4

This chart is available from your local cross stitch store. In the chart are two different versions of this pattern, one using cross stitch and one using cross stitch and beading. Below are ideas for finishing your piece.

To mount stitched version on fabric: I used Needle Art Peel and Stick Mounting board for Textile Art

I tilted the design to the side and attached a hanger to one edge.

On both pieces I used cording I made. To make cording use DMC 3685, DMC 699 and DMC 728. Have someone hold on to the end of all three pieces, cut about three times as long as you want the hanger to be. Twist in the same direction until the cord starts to kink and knot then fold in half, smooth, and secure the ends.

I got the heavy burgundy cording for around the piece from Mindy's Needlep9oint Factory.

I used slightly lighter mauves to stitch the necklace: 3685 instead of 814, 3687 instead of 3685 and 3688 instead of 3687
