Cross stitch chart - Coquecigrues fabric - Museum and Heritage Collection
This cross stitch pattern chart represents a famous toile de Jouy called Coquecigrues, a fantasy animal supposed to be formed of a cockerel, a crane and a stork. These floral motif fabrics are called indiennes or chintz and are less well-known than the character Jouy prints. It comes from the large pattern chart created by Frédérique Crestin-Billet evoking the history of Toile de Jouy at the Oberkampf manufactory.
Dimension: 210 x 144 points - 35 x 24cm. The motif is repetitive and can be embroidered as many time as you wish. To calculate the dimension of fabric necessary, multiply the dimensions by the number of repetitions you wish to sew in width and height.
To respect the spirit of the original indiennes clothes, we recommend you sew this motif on off white 32 count embroidery linen. To embroider this motif, you will need the following Retors du Nord embroidery thread : 2005 – 2007 – 2022 – 2023 – 2024 – 2028 – 2033 - 2034 – 2038 – 2302 – 2332 – 2536 - 2749 et 2876.
This full-colour pattern chart is printed on a large 60cm x 29cm sheet of paper and presented in a Sajou folder. This pattern chart contains a large motif which reproduces the original cloth. Another pattern chart offers a repeat motif. Also available: two pattern charts for Bonnes Herbes. This motif can also be found on our Coquecigrues motif round box to embroider model.
