The pattern is hand drawn by Rebecca Ringquist and printed on fabric. It arrives ready for you to hoop and stitch. Rebecca stitched hers all in back stitch, which couldn't be easier. Yours could be stitched with backstitch, french knots, or a stitch of your own invention! (Satin stitch would be incredible!)
The sampler arrives preprinted on cotton quilting fabric, ready to stitch and includes basic instructions. You provide your own threads, needles, and hoop.
What size is it?
The Bubblegum Sampler measures approximately 6" x 6"

How should I back my sampler?
For best results, I recommend backing this fabric with a second piece of fabric (cotton or linen) before placing your fabric in the hoop. You'll get the flattest,
most even stitches this way. Check out my how to for this step on creativebug or IGTV (@dropcloth)
What size hoops should I use? I like a size 6- but use whatever you hoop you have on hand.
