Inhaltsangabe: From folk hearts and roses to ballet shoes and butterflies, inside this book there are motifs galore, plus dozens of project ideas to please every cross-stitch crafter.
Welcoming newcomers to the craft, this book clearly explains the stitches, shows how to prepare the fabric, includes more than 800 illustrated step-by-step instructions, plus supplies directions for a traditional cross-stitch sampler from start to finish. Seasoned stitchers can skip ahead to hundreds of motifs, including numbers and letters. Covering a wide range of themes, each motif is accompanied by an inspirational photograph, easy-to-read color pattern chart, materials list, thread key, and step-by-step instructions. Plus you?ll find a useful size guide accompanying every motif, which allows you to tailor each pattern to the dimensions needed.
This easy-to-use resource is organized into three parts: Part One offers hints and tips for choosing the best fabrics and the differences between threads, as well as simple techniques of basic cross-stitch and its variations. Part Two teaches some ways to spruce up your projects with embellishments, such as tassels, sequins, beads, and fringing. Part Three provides a library of more than 900 motifs.
Crafters of all experience levels will find a motif to suit any occasion.
From humble beginnings, a bunch of crosses--the easiest stitch in the world to conquer--becomes swimming sea horses, a plot of vegetables, even a fool-the-eye Middle Eastern kilim. As always, when editors at Reader's Digest identify a subject to publish, they explore its history, plumb the most popular techniques, then apply those learnings pragmatically. Here, cross-stitching takes on a more artistic bent, starting with the book's layout--big type fonts, step-by-step illustrations with full-color photographs of the projects--and ending with more than 900 designs. What is most unusual in a quantity-driven crafts book is the detail appended to each motif: charts, color photograph, thread key, a size guide, and stitching directions. A good reference--and even better source for inspiration. Barbara Jacobs
