Instructions:

  1. Purchase the painted canvas from your local needlepoint store or online store.
  2. Stitch following the guide below.

Guide:

BACKGROUND: Color 033L Royal Blast in basketweave stitch

CROWN: Color 002HL Gold High Lustre in half cross stitch. Colors 012L Lavendartric and 026L Punchy Purple in basketweave stitch. All other colors in half cross stitch to match the painted canvas.

FINISHING:

Block canvas if necessary to restore shape.

  1. Cut off excess selvage, leaving 2 canvas threads.
  2. Carefully remove the paper from the cut-off portion of the mirror case, leaving the sticky layer in place. Place the stitched needlepoint into the sticky layer. Make the fine adjustments if necessary and glue down edge of the opening to the needlepoint selvage. A plastic knife or popsicle stick is a handy way to apply the glue. Just don't apply too much glue.
  3. Attach the hot-fix embellishments to the center top of the crown according to the directions on the applicator.
