Mini Stitch Guide: Love Bugs

I used a lot of overlapping colors for this series, so I have created a table to make it easy for you to shop for fibers for the full set! You will only need one skein/card of each of the colors to cover all 4 canvases. The only exception is you will need 2 skeins of Pepper Pot Cream for the backgrounds. 

I do not offer kits for these canvases, but you can procure the fibers below through a needlepoint shop. KC Needlepoint has a great selection of fibers and Novella Needlepoint carries a ton of gorgeous Treenway Silks!
