Bonnes Herbes #1 chart



This cross stitch pattern chart represents three models of "Bonnes Herbes" (Botanical Plants), floral motifs on a black base, less familiar than the character fabrics from Toile de Jouy. It comes from thel arge pattern chart created by Frédérique Crestin-Billet evoking the history of Toile de Jouy at the Oberkampf manufactory.

This full-colour pattern chart is printed on a large A3 sheet of paper. Each motif is repetitive and can be embroidered as many time as you wish. 

Dimension of first motif: 27 stitches wide by 28 stitches high - 4.5 x 4.7cm. 

Dimensions of second and third motifs: 30 x 30 stitches - 5 x 5cm.

To calculate the dimension of fabric necessary, multiply the above dimensions by the number of repetitions you wish to sew in width and height.

To respect the spirit of the original bonnes herbes, we recommend you sew these motifs on black 30 count linen

It is presented in a Sajou folder.
