October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and DMC has several projects you can stitch to honor those who have been stricken with breast cancer, as well as other cancers.
Stitch this heartwarming Bird of Hope pattern in cross stitch on 14-count Aida using 12 colors of embroidery floss.
The pattern for the ribbons shown here can be downloaded and stitched using just 4 coordinating colors of DMC Embroidery Floss.
Several cancers are represented on the sheet, but if you do not see yours listed, it’s easy to substitute the proper colors when working this simple design.
You might also want to stitch a single pink ribbon using either embroidery floss, Color Variations or Light Effects threads.
