We are celebrating the Chinese Zodiac in 2020! In this collection you can find the patterns and supplies for two different Chinese Zodiac themed projects we are working on this year.
"Year Of" are the cute chubby animals with lanterns. We will be releasing one animal each month this year in the order in which they appear in the Chinese Zodiac. Each chart comes with the number 1-9 so you can customize the lanterns for whatever year you'd like to celebrate. These animals are stitched on Chime fabric from Picture This Plus with hand-dyed threads from Classic Colorworks and Weeks Dye Works in addition to DMC. As with all of our charts, our color key contains the colors in DMC and Cosmo, along with conversion of any hand-dyed threads to DMC and Cosmo as well.
Chinese Zodiac Club is different than the Year Of pattern. It's a mystery stitch-a-long that releases on the 15th of each month. You'll receive an email with a link to an easy to download file. We've been running mystery stitch-a-longs for the past ten years and they are so much fun! This pattern is stitched with DMC or Cosmo threads on Sand fabric from Picture This Plus along with Rainbow Gallery Petite Treasure Braid thread. This mystery club runs until November 15th when the final chart is released.
