Marilyn Monroe is one of the world’s most enduring screen icons and sex symbols — and now she is yours to cross stitch. Inspired by a cover photo from the Italian Epoca magazine, this fantastic project is sure to be a talking point in your home or up-styled office.
The publicity photo behind our Marilyn cross stitch pattern was set on a black background with bright, warm-toned lighting. The lighting exaggerates the glow on Marilyn’s face, lips, fur coat, and blonde hair and we chose to replicate these copper/bronze tones in the project.
It’s a large cross stitch and the design area covers 33.4 x 42.5cm. You’ll be using 27 different DMC colour tones and completing 31,600 stitches. But don’t worry, you’ll be able to track your stitches in Pattern Keeper App.
We designed this project for a dark background and don’t recommend stitching on white Aida or light toned fabrics.
