Information provided by designer:

I've seen lots of different patriotic themed and stylized flag designs, but for this series I wanted to really stay as true as I could to the actual flags they symbolize, while adding texture and sparkle to reflect my own style.

Model stitched (and frogged and restitched multiple times) by Esther Hung.

Materials

Stitch Count: 198w x 102h

Design Size: 10 x 5 ¼ inches on 40 count fabric
11 x 5 ¾ inches on 36 count fabric
12 ½ x 6 ½ inches on 32 count fabric
14 ¼ x 7 ¼ inches on 28 count fabric
Fabric used for the model is 36ct Sand from Picture This Plus.

Floss Used:
Dinky Dyes 254 Heartthrob OR DMC 321 x2 skeins*
Dinky Dyes 000 Natural OR DMC Blanc x2 skeins*
Dinky Dyes 066 Midnight OR DMC 336 x1 skein*

Beads Used:
Delica Beads DB0602 (11/0) Silver Lined Christmas Red OR Mill Hill 02099 x213 beads**
Delica Beads DB0202 (11/0) White Pearl AB OR Mill Hill 03041 x620 beads**
Delica Beads DB0183 (11/0) Silver Lined Dark Cobalt OR Mill Hill 02090 x612 beads**

* The DMC and Dinky Dyes are not an exact match, but they're fairly close.
** These are not exact matches – the Mill Hill beads are a slightly larger bead but should fit okay. The colours are a very close match.

Floss estimates are for 36 count fabric stitching over two, one strand for cross stitch and 1-2 for specialty stitches as directed. If you are using a lower count of fabric, you'll want to adjust the amount of floss accordingly.

Happy Stitching!
