This is a devilishly delightful collection of cross-stitch and embroidery designs with a twist. For crafters who like their stitching with a twist, this unique book takes cross stitch and embroidery to the dark side! Think charming cottages with roses around the door - but with abandoned vehicles in the front yard, or napkins embroidered with pretty but deadly poisonous plants...Projects of this title include an RIP (read in peace) bookmark, a butterfly and skulls tote bag, and a pig strikes back barbecue apron (see above). Inspired by popular culture and street art, it's the craft equivalent of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies and is guaranteed to amuse and entertain. The book contains 30 truly original cross stitch and embroidery designs including pictures, cards, pillows, and accessories. "Twisted Stitches" also features comprehensive instructions on techniques for new stitchers, presented in a fresh, entertaining way, as well as full size fold-out charts of the larger designs.
