Papillon Creations

There is no more beautiful place to be than Paris in the Spring. This band sampler celebrates this — spring flowers abound, butterflies flit around and hardanger café curtains float on the breeze. The Eiffel tower presides at the top, and at the base, the bargello river Seine twinkles in the warm sunshine. From delicate whitework bands to more contemporary motifs, this little sampler will have your fingers itching to stitch. And, even though it boasts a wealth of speciality stitches, it is easy enough for a confident beginner to tackle.

The design is charted for either Kreinik silk Mori threads or DMC stranded cotton. But you could make the sampler unique by choosing your own threads. Just use the thread description as a guide and be creative! I have designated one thread as metallic but, of course if you don’t want to use a metallic, you can substitute a non-metallic thread. However you choose to stitch the sampler, I’m sure it will brighten up even the dullest day.
