Cross stitch pattern, "Mushrooms grow in poop" with 6 mushrooms, with 2 bonus minis (pictured in second and third photos)

Now available as an instant digital download! :D

---The Story---

This is NOT a finished cross stitch. If you would like a finished 5x7 version of this cross stitch, please convo me and I'll set up a special listing. If you'd like a mini version, one is up in the shop! See "The Listings" below.

This listing is for a PDF pattern for a beginner-intermediate level cross stitch that says "mushrooms grow in poop" with 6 mushrooms. The mushrooms can be stitched as pictured for a 5x7 finished cross stitch, or they can be used in any combination desired for smaller frames or hoops. This listing includes both the pattern for the image shown, and 2 additional mini patterns for smaller sizing.

Other photos are of other patterns that may be found in the cross stitch patterns section of my shop.

---The Deets---

To complete this pattern, you will need knowledge of basic cross stitch and back-stitching with optional French knots.

The completed "mushrooms grow in poop" fits in a standard horizontal 5x7 frame when stitched on 14 ct Aida cloth. Each mini "mushrooms grow in poop" fit in a 3" round embroidery hoop.

*WHAT YOU WILL GET: You will NOT receive a physical product. The patterns (including a 5x7 and a mini) and images can be downloaded as soon as your payment has gone through, here on Etsy. Please let me know if you have any trouble opening or receiving the files!

The pattern includes a color legend for DMC embroidery floss.

*HOW YOU WILL GET IT: You will NOT receive a physical product. You will be able to download the files to your computer as soon as payment clears.

If you would like a kit containing the materials needed to complete any one (or more) of these stitches, convo me and I'll assemble materials and set up a special order for you.

Because of the nature of this product, no refunds can be issued after the pattern has been downloaded, but let me know if you have any trouble opening or viewing the files!

Any questions? Convo me! I'm happy to answer questions and very happy to get feedback that can help me improve my products. : )

---The Legal Stuff---

This design is copyright Alicia Watkins 2012. You may stitch it yourself and give the finished product as a gift, but please do not share, distribute, or re-sell the pattern, and please do not sell completed versions of it.

I'd love to see it when you're done! :D

Frequently asked questions about aliciawatkins

I love to do custom work during the non-holiday months! I try to work on one custom project at a time so that I can give each project my full customizing attention; as a result, a significant lead time on deadlines for receiving your custom order is very much appreciated.

If possible, try to contact me at least a month in advance of a deadline for receiving a 5x7 custom cross stitch. (That said, if you're in a pinch and you know I'm the stitcher for the job, convo me anyway! If I happen to be in between custom orders, I can often get things out in a much shorter time, and like I said, I love working with customers on personalized stitchery.)
Most of my small finished cross stitches have an option for gift wrapping.

If you don't see a drop-down list as you purchase a small hooped or framed cross stitch (smaller than 4x6), but you would like your item to be wrapped in plain paper (with a small notecard for your message included), request gift wrap as you check out in the "notes to seller"!

If you're having your gift sent directly to the recipient, please double-check the address it's going to before you finish checking out, and let me know what you'd like me to write in the notecard to your recipient! :)
Mini kits are available for wholesale ordering at any time; contact me for details on which kits I have available with shelf-ready labeling, and for pricing details!

I also offer a selection of finished cross stitch available for wholesale or certain consignment situations, for stores that feel my work would be a good fit. Contact me if you're interested in carrying my work in your store, and we'll talk about what I've done in the past and what you're looking for! :)
I believe in using secondhand frames because it's eco-friendly, supports my local thrift shops, and allows me to frame your items, if you'd like that, at very low cost.

Because they are unique and unapproved by you, I don't pass on the cost of the secondhand frames to you, except for the cost of shipping (usually about a $2 difference).

When you order an item from me, rest assured that you are only paying for the stitchwork, and you may treat the frame as a "suggestion" -- if you don't like it, give the frame away! Your 4x6 or larger cross stitch will come with a mounting board that will allow you to easily pop it out of the "suggested" frame I've sent it in and into any same-sized frame of your choice.
I can't send you a photo of your options for 4x6 or larger frames; I have too many frames and a too quickly rotating stock for that. However, you're welcome to let me know your preferences in color and material (i.e. wood, metal, plastic) and I'll do what I can to accommodate your wishes.

If you receive your stitchwork and you HATE the frame I chose from my cache of secondhand frames, never fear! The stitching for a 4x6 or larger frame will be mounted on a board that you can simply pop out of the secondhand frame you received, and pop INto a frame you choose from a local store, another Etsy seller, or anywhere you find perfect frames.

Because the secondhand frames I send are free, I cannot offer replacements or frame-related refunds.
Google and Youtube are your BFFs in learning to cross stitch, but if you've purchased a kit or pattern from my shop, I can also offer you a Basic Cross Stitch instruction booklet via email. Just let me know you'd like one, and I'll send it along! :)
