More than 50 pretty projects are presented in this title from the Made in France series. Categorised by colour, in timeless red, white and blue, the projects feature a mix of contemporary and nostalgic designs, all possessing a certain charm. The first chapter presents useful instructions for ‘getting started', plus a library of basic stitches including cross stitch, stem stitch, detached chain stitch and French knots. The subsequent chapters provide endless applications of the featured motifs, with which to create gifts and accessories for the home. Projects range from a basic table runner and elegant shawl to a variety of more challenging bag designs. There is also a range of sweet embroidery keepsakes, for lovers of needlework accessories.
All embroidery motifs are provided, along with clear and effective cross stitch graphs. Like Linen and Thread (from the same series), this title is beautifully presented, with clean and simple styling throughout the gorgeous photographs.
