Now I have discovered some of these neat things to stitch, I have just designed  and stitched a small zigouioui, the design has a wreath of flowers made with closter blocks, chain stitch leaves and  beads.
 I stitched this one with red flowers as a christmas decoration.

It could be stitched with pastel shades for the flowers and fill with lavender for a gift or made as a pincushion not a hanging.

 The design area is 124 threads by 124 threads and any  count thread fabric could be used.
Back stitch round the design area first. The graph shows one section, turn it to repeat the other parts.

Je suis la créatrice du zigouigoui et ce mot signifie plusieurs choses en français dont : petit rien (little nothing) ou petite chose que l'on ne peut pas nommer .

Si vous avez le temps j'aimerais beaucoup avoir une photo de votre zigouigoui pour ma galerie .
