Sugar Skull Calavera. This pattern can be stitched on any Aida or even-weave fabric. I designed it with a 16ct blue aida in mind. If stitched on blue aida, you can leave out the blue floss stitches. Of course if you stitch them all, any colour aida will do. This would also look amazing on black aida. You can use any count of aida you like, but be aware that the lower counts are usually easier to stitch, and the higher counts will result in a smaller finished product.
Stitches: 136 x 189
Finished size on 14 ct: 9.75 x 13.5" approx
Finished size on 16 ct: 8.5 x 12" approx
Finished size on 18 ct: 7.5 x 10.5" approx
Stitch Type: Full Cross Stitches
Skill Level: Easy

***ALL PATTERNS BY COWBELL CROSS STITCH ARE DESIGNED BY A STITCHER FOR STITCHERS. UNLIKE OTHER CROSS STITCH SHOPS, I DO NOT SIMPLY CHOOSE RANDOM IMAGES FROM THE INTERNET AND CRANK OUT COMPUTER GENERATED PATTERNS. MY PATTERNS ARE ALL DESIGNED STITCH BY STITCH, COLORS ARE CAREFULLY CHOSEN TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF SKEINS YOU WILL NEED, AND EVEN THE SYMBOLS ARE CAREFULLY CHOSEN TO MAKE AN EASY TO READ PATTERN. ***
