Summary

Summary

Borders are the focal point for so many cross-stitch projects; wouldn't it be great to have one book bursting with a variety of exceptional patterns to choose from? "These collections of contemporary cross-stitch designs from Italy...can be applied to any fabric by using waste canvas, which is pulled out after working...borders are mainly flowers or animals...easily worked designs are good additions to public library needlework collections."-- Library Journal.

Library Journal Review

These collections of contemporary cross-stitch designs from Italy are suitable for embellishing clothing and linens or creating original samplers. Although the examples pictured are worked on even-weave fabric, the designs can be applied to any fabric by using waste canvas, which is pulled out after working. Many of the alphabets have large, colorful figures that would appeal to children; borders are mainly flowers or animals. All patterns are charted in color or black and white, with symbols keyed to DMC thread. These easily worked designs are good additions to public library needlework collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
