Whimsical Cross Stitch - hardback book by Patrick Lose (1995)
Full-color photographs showcase every exciting project. The year-round delights include great gift ideas, home accessories, pictures to frame, and even jewelry! Treat a special friend, or yourself, to bold swirl button covers and a linked heart collar swag, or a jangly "Lots of Love" lapel pin with hanging charms. You don't have to wait for St. Patrick's Day to use a set of "Luck o' the Irish" shamrock napkins or a Claddagh covered keepsake box. Hang Halloween hand towels in the bathroom, and tote your autumn take-alongs in a not-too-scary "Jack-in-the-Moon" bag or give it to the kids for trick-or-treating. For winter magic, make a lovable, friendly "Folk Art Frosty" doll - a lopsided snowman with a very big heart, or a lapel pin featuring his smiling face. And what would Christmas be without a Nutcracker or Santa? Stitch the jolly fellows to hang on the wall throughout the season or all year long.
Colorful charts and complete finishing instructions allow even beginning crossstitchers to create these wonderful projects stitched on everything from standard aida cloth to perforated plastic to sweaters and towels. Many of the projects incorporate beads, and some even include prints of the designs that can be used for decoupage or to make gift cards.
Whether you keep all the smiles for yourself, or share them with friends and family, you won't be able to resist making all of these whimsical creations.
