  • a small embroidery hoop (optional)
  • a five-inch by five-inch square of 11-count Aida fabric
  • eight contrasting colors of embroidery floss
  • a size 22 or 24 tapestry needle.

    Use the DMC floss colors used in the model (353, 350, 552, 554, 699, 700, 809, and 820) or choose your own colors.
