Flea Market Souvenir by Blackbird Designs

Flea Market Souvenir is another of the patterns offered by the ladies of Blackbird Designs. It consists of three small motifs that are stitched on three separate pieces of linen then stitched together for the "flea market" look. Or, like me, you may prefer to stitch the three designs on one piece of fabric.  Fabric and floss requirements are listed below.
