Hobbit House Cross Stitch Chart

Following on from our post a couple of months ago, which featured blackwork charts for a poem from The Hobbit, written in Tengwar, we've now designed a cross stitch chart featuring Bilbo Baggin's house from The Hobbit/Lord Of The Rings films!

The chart measures 188 squares x 88, so stitched on 14ct Aida, it should measure approximately 13.5 inches by 6.5 inches, although you could leave a bigger gap at the edges, or add your own border to it.  You'll need six or seven shades of green thread for the grass and plants, four or five shades of brown/beige for the walls, window frames etc, some pale blue for the windows, grey and yellow for the lantern, colours of your choice for the flowers, small amounts of gold for the door-knob and blue for Gandalf's mark on the door. Alternatively, you could sew a small, decorative brass button in the centre of the door for the door-knob, or use seed-beads for the flowers.





Happy stitching!
