Orange Marilyn Mini cross stitch pattern is our minimalist interpretation of Andy Warhol’s orange piece from his Shot Marilyn series, originally printed in 1964. It’s a small full coverage project that uses a splattering of colour to create depth and that grainy, pop art feel.
We designed this miniature cross stitch as a fun project that won’t take long to finish. It measures just 9.3cm x 9.3cm (2,602 stitches) when stitched on 14 count Aida, and requires 33 different DMC colours.

If you’re looking for something different to cross stitch, why not mix and match our [coming soon] selection of 12 brightly coloured Marilyn Minis. The shot Marilyns and other celebrity appropriations by Andy Warhol are now an instantly recognisable part of 20th century culture and trend.
Each piece measure 51×51 stitches (9.3cm x 9.3cm on 14 count Aida) and will certainly add some style to tote bags, cushions, and clothing.
