Hopefully you can prints these charts out with no problems. The only help I can give is to save it on your own computer and print from there.
I will be stitching these
on 28 count white linen tea dyed by myself. I found directions here, TEA DYING.
Stitch with any colours
you find you like. As always, I have gone by the colour on my screen and not
actual floss numbers. I use a DMC book to pick my final colours.
Of course there's the
text and the borders, but apart from that the only backstitch lines on the cahrts are to distinguish white stitches from the
white back ground and showing where to put the tassel.
Things to back stitch
The ribbon in Witch for
Outline of veil in white
floss in Bridal Witch
For the tassel:
You could stitch the beads
where they are placed on the chart.
Or string coloured beads
complimentary to the design on 1 strand of floss the colour of which should match the top of your hat. Tie floss at the ends – but loosely. Do as many of these
as you feel suit your piece. Thread beaded strings though one more bead to collect
all tassels together. If you like you could bead the whole length of the tassel. Thread tassel through fabric at the top of the hat.
You may want to anchor the tassel at some point or allow it to swing free.

Rayon floss – shiny
Places to Embellish:
I will be using Mill Hill
Treasures and Beads on most of my hats. I will put a treasure on the circle within
the buckle, example, a bat treasure on the Batty Witch, a spider instead of a tassel on Tangle Web etc. On Sexy Witch I will be adding pieces of feather (red and black) somewhere, either the brim or from behind
the buckle. On Bridal Witch the cross at the top of hat is for the rough
placement of a charm.
