90 narrow cross stitch borders

This time I show you my embroidered border patch and share the patterns. I embroidered the borders on a 5 cm wide aida band and the length became 93 cm. With a few exceptions, all borders are no higher than 3 crosses. When I started I had no idea how long it would be, that would depend on how many borders I managed to come up with. It was a really fun challenge and a real inspiration for me.

I chose a nice color red DMC splitting thread No.815.

First I will show the pictures of the borders and then the scans of the embroidery patterns will follow. On the 1st picture border 1 and 2 are missing, but they are with the patterns.

To protect the embroidery from dirt, I rolled it up and put it in a glass jar. It now stands with some other fun items on an decorative tray to show off.
