4.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational and easy to use, 13 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Simple Sewn Gifts: Stitch 25 Fast and Easy Gifts (Paperback)
Having never cross stitched before, I was a bit sceptical about how the projects would turn out- but the pictures looked great and I was inspired to attempt them. My book arrived from Amazon and within 3 days, I had already cross stitched a couple of beach huts as well as a boat. The patterns are colour coded and easy to follow. There is even a handy flap on both covers which makes finding your page when continuing the pattern easy. The projects in the book are charming and I have just bought the fabric to sew the hearts on the front cover. I will also be making some of the other cross stitches featured in the book. Perhaps, the only disadvantage that the book has is that the stitching projects are all small and will therefore not challenge the experienced cross stitcher and for this reason, I am rating the book as a 4. Also to be noted is that this in fact is a cross stitching book primarily- something which is not easily recognisable before buying the book. My decision to buy the book was however an informed one as one of the Amazon reviews had pointed this out. All in all, inspirational and great value for money.
