Made in France: Cross-stitch Samplers

5.0 out of 5 stars Cross stitch loveliness, 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have only made one sampler from this book but know that I will kep dipping into it constantly. The designs are easy to follow and so effective in just one colour stitching. Apart from the heart design on the book jacket the book contains 30 different projects including lots of alphabet designs and motifs that can be incorporated into your own design of sampler. Houses; cats; birds; chickens; pastoral characters and scenes with a French twist plus borders etc. The book contains easy to follow charts for the smaller items and also 8 full scale loose sheets in a integral pocket for the larger samplers. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to produce a French vintage style sampler.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little french sewing excitement, 9 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Trésors chinés (Paperback)
I bought this book having purchased a couple of french sewing books from Amazon France which offer something a little different from the norm. This one does not disappoint with gorgeous inspiring photographs and lovely projects including an applique bag; corsages; book cover; a hanging heart with pockets for momentoes and notes; a patchwork cover/quilt; a sweet angel and garland; mobile of little houses and patchwrk vehicles; little rag doll; wall hanging; birds in a cage; pictures; lovely sewing case with fabric roses; sewing bag; fabric decorations and a garland all made from vintage linens; lace and pretty vintage trims. This is the perfect book for fans of vintage french fabric and most of the projects do not take much material to complete. There are patterns and photocopiable pages for decoupage/ printing onto fabric. However I think only an experienced crafter would get away with a scant knowledge of french and able to make the items from looking at the pictures, as the book is written in french only.
