9781844487462: Liberty Cross Stitch: 24 Designs to Sew

Liberty is London's world-famous department store that specializes in gorgeous art-nouveau, nature-inspired, and traditional art fabrics and this book brings the Liberty look to cross stitch with pastel-toned motifs to use. Hélène Le Berre’s stylish designs give the simple, traditional technique of cross stitch a fresh, contemporary appeal and place it firmly in the 21st century. With clear, step-by-step instructions, beautiful photographs, full-size patterns, and easy-to-follow cross-stitch charts, crafters will be amazed at how easily they can make something special. There are 24 designs to choose from, including toys, a quilt, tiny slippers, and a handy little bag for mother and baby; photo frames, cushions, colorful pot holders, and other items for the home; and perfect gifts to keep or give away that include bags, purses, and earrings. Even the timeless little black dress is revisited and given a hand-embroidered finish.

Review:

May/June 2012 Helene Le Berre combines contemporary cross-stitch designs with classic Liberty prints to create 24 projects for the modern home, friends and family. Inspiring photography, full-size patterns and easy-to-use cross-stitch charts can't fail to inspire. Even the timeless little black dress is revisited and given a hand-embroidered finish. * Embroidery * Aug 12 A beautiful book full of exquisite original cross stitch designs paired with delicious Liberty fabric. Helene has mixed and matched her cross stitch designs perfectly to produce highly original work to be treasured. The book is divided into three sections - 'Just for you,' 'In the home' and 'For baby.' With eight projects in each section there is a good variety of patterns. There are three bags, a cushion, a book cover, a rattle, a garland, some slippers, a tea pouch, a placemat, some photo frames and a hair accessory amongst many others. The projects are very well organised. There is a small section at the start to tell you exactly what you need such as the measurements of the fabric, right down to the details of specific thread needed to sew one button. There are six pages of full size patterns at the back of the book that you won't have to enlarge on a photocopier. Before that there are 18 pages of cross stitch patterns which are colour coded and labelled with the thread codes next to the colours. The projects are based around Liberty fabrics and they are clearly identified in the materials section but you could always use other fabric of your choice if you could not find them or if they have been discontinued as the author says in the back of the book. I think this is a wonderful book if you love sewing and cross stitch. It's a great book for beautiful presents for people you love as the delicacy of the cross stitch will make it look laboured when it has actually been relatively easy. * sewingisforgirls.blogspot.com * April 2016 This is not a new book but we love it so much that we just had to tell those of you haven't seen it all about it. Full of beautiful cross-stitch projects Full of beautiful cross-stitch projects, Helene has mixed and matched her exquisite designs with delicious liberty fabrics to produce highly original work to be treasured. The book is divided into three sections: Just for you; In the home and For the baby. The 24 stitching projects include bags, a purse, a cushion, photo frames a quilt and more. Each project has step-by-step instructions accompanied by beautiful photographs, plus full sized patterns and charts. * Love to Make *
