A little thread, some linen, a needle, a few easy stitches, and more than 50 pretty projects worked in cross stitch, stem stitch or French knots - let yourself be seduced by the simple art of embroidery. Elegant and timeless in red, white and blue, these exquisite needlecraft motifs can be used in a multitude of ways to create unique gifts and home accessories.
Let me turn the pages so you can have a look what inside it. A child's dress all crisp in white cotton with a bit of lace and few pin tugs, a line of red stitching and motifs of little girls sitting all in a row. The opposite page is some redwork embroidery on pillow slip and bed sheet.
French people loves snail and in this page they are snails embroidered on an apron . A simple gift to make for that special French cook! The next page is a redwork motif on a tea cloth. A nice touch for that special tray.
The last page I am showing you are some of the patterns in this book. This is a great book for creative people with little spare time to make handmade gifts. I like the simplicity of the patterns and motifs that I can either make a whole table cloth or just put a small touch on a baby singlet.
