Pinocchio cross stitch HELP!!!

by efhawks » Thu Feb 23, 2017 2:01 am

Okay so today I went back to my Pinocchio wishes upon a star by Thomas Kinkade and I'm looking at the pattern and color chart and it totally in black and white! All the back stitch details are shades of gray and there is no way to tell what is what. See photos below...

I emailed mcg but they have not responded. :tantrum: I was wondering if any of you had done this pattern and would be willing to share your chart with me. I at a loss of what to do! :tizzy:

Thanks Erica

That is frustrating! Look in the stitching instructions (you know - the paragraphs of stuff we usually ignore) and see if they have some descriptors for the back stitching. While I haven't done any of the Thomas Kincaid stuff, I have a number of patterns from The Art of Disney from Stoney Creek. The patterns are black and grey like yours appears to be, but the wordy part of the directions will have stuff like "Backstitch Mickey eyes 310" and then go on to have additional colors assigned to specific areas. I always have to go hunting for these instructions and then make my own notes on the legend. Good Luck!

I have also had charts over the years with backstitching instructions like DisneyStitcher described. I don't have the chart or instructions, but others have stitched Kincaid Disney paintings though I don't remember seeing a Pinocchio. I hope you find written directions or get a response to your email soon. I'm sure this is frustrating.

I don't have that one, but could you maybe use the cover picture to help figure it out?

I don't have any of the MCG Disney patterns. But I would suggest what fccs has suggested and try to eyeball the color using the cover photo. Hope you find resolution quickly.
