SSD-WTC16                       13 Star American Flag

1 5/8” w by 1” h - 23 stitches w by 13 stitches h

Cross-stitch design “13 Star American Flag”
shows ‘Old Glory’ as it appeared
as the United States of America began.  
Petite beads on the field of blue
are used to represent the 13 stars
for the 13 original colonies.  
There are 7 red rows and 6 white rows of stitching
to make the important 13 stripes.

The image is on a pre-finished oval
ready to be finished to be decorative on both sides
(with detailed finishing instructions provided)
and hung as a decoration after a ribbon
is laced through the lace edge of the medallion.  
The ribbon provides a unique accent to the motif.

While the design may be stitched
onto the pre-finished oval and used as an ornament,
it may also be stitched onto a small piece of fabric,
or by using waste canvas,
it can be applied to fabric or apparel.
