Chop Suey cross stitch pattern was inspired by the 1929 oil painting Chop Suey by American artist Edward Hopper. It’s a vivid restaurant scene focusing on two women and a couple, sitting inside an inner-city restaurant. Big windows provide a glimpse of gaudy billboards, city lights, and fire escape ladders.
We think you’ll enjoy stitching the bold lines, bright colours, and interesting textures of this 20th-century American masterpiece.
Chop Suey cross stitch is a large, full-coverage project measuring 54.4cm x 45.5cm (300 x 251 stitches) when completed on 14-count Aida cloth. You’ll need 193 different DMC colours to produce the fabulous details in the paintings and the finished piece has 75,300 stitches.
It’s a tricky chart with quite a lot of confetti, but your download pack includes an extra chart that has been specially formulated for the Pattern Keeper App. PK makes everything much easier.
Edward Hopper was an American artist who lived from 1882 until 1967. He is famous for his contribution to American Realism and for bringing the ‘everyday’ into his paintings. We’ve transformed some of his paintings (that are now in the public domain) into beautiful cross stitch projects.
