Format: Hardcover
The charts in the book are well presented and easy to follow. The colours are well chosen for the designs and instructions are clearly written. This book is well suited for a beginner in Cross Stitch.
However, Wallace and Gromit has been used a particular selling point for the book and there are only three rather plain and unexciting designs.
Overall, a disappointing buy.

Format: Hardcover
Adele Welsby's 'Cross Stitch Characters' is a wonderfully set out and beautifully presented hardback book. The colour charts are a joy and the instructions for the projects are simple and easy to follow. There are also plenty of other ideas or variations that you could stitch.
Welsby introduces each project with a justification of her choice of characters and suggestions for gifts and framing. She also frequently includes a 'Stitching Ideas' column of how to adapt the project to suit your needs, for example, the picture used on a placemat could become a patch on a t-shirt.
This book will make you want to dive straight in and start stitching, but will probably leave you wanting a larger variety of character depictions and more of them. However, with luck, this will be the first in a long line of 'character' cross stitch chart books.

I am pleased with this book, It has many of my daughters favourite characters and I am already stitching a Percy the Park keeper picture for her bedroom.

A good colourful cross stitch pattern book with characters suitable for children. A good book to have in your collection if you are a cross stitcher.
