Liberty is London's world-famous department store that specializes in gorgeous art-nouveau, nature-inspired, and traditional art fabrics and this book brings the Liberty look to cross stitch with pastel-toned motifs to use. Hélène Le Berre’s stylish designs give the simple, traditional technique of cross stitch a fresh, contemporary appeal and place it firmly in the 21st century. With clear, step-by-step instructions, beautiful photographs, full-size patterns, and easy-to-follow cross-stitch charts, crafters will be amazed at how easily they can make something special. There are 24 designs to choose from, including toys, a quilt, tiny slippers, and a handy little bag for mother and baby; photo frames, cushions, colorful pot holders, and other items for the home; and perfect gifts to keep or give away that include bags, purses, and earrings. Even the timeless little black dress is revisited and given a hand-embroidered finish.
