There was no graph

where is pattern?

Just an FYI, this is not cross-stitch. I would describe it as embroidery. Cute idea, though!

I'm thinking of having a tea party bridal shower and was thinking of modifying this pattern to put the bride and groom names and wedding date on the cup. I could either enclose it in the invitation to the shower or use it for the shower favor. It is going to be very small wedding. so the shower will be very small too.
