Customer Review

on 13 July 2012
I absolutely love the retro patterns & organic motifs in this book, which I will probably adapt to a smaller scale, most patterns being 7 - 12" square - although smaller variations are provided for jam jar lids, greeting cards etc. In fact, there are some nice ideas for finishing (if you are bored of cushions and, um, pincushions!) including edging for a skirt and a lampshade!

Overall, this is a beautiful, original and inspiring collection and I just love the retro feel. Basic crewel instruction is provided so even the beginner can attempt the designs. My only slight criticism would be the separation of all the patterns to trace in the latter half of the book rather than alongside the pictures of the stitched pieces, but I realise this is standard practice, and the patterns are well worth the small faff of flipping backward and forward.
