Retro Fun in Stitches
About the Book
Retro Fun in Stitches is a collection of pastel animals, cupcakes, flowers and retro vehicles which are perfect to make into cushions, simple gift cards or pictures for the wall. Make birth and wedding samplers by simply adding names and dates using the alphabets provided. Some of these patterns can be used to celebrate family events such as births and weddings or stitch a sweet animal for a bedroom wall. Let your imagination go wild and stitch cupcakes on aprons, make miniature fridge magnets using plastic canvas or a row of cars to make a cake band or a camper van on a giant cushion.
The cross stitch designs are a variety of easy and hard pictures making them suitable for a beginners and the more experienced stitcher. Why not start with a simple cupcake or for the more experienced stitcher try the "Congratulations beetle" as a wedding sampler. Add personal details with the alphabet I have included to make a lovely gift.
