Michael Powell has created adorable Christmas cross stitch patterns that can be used for tags, Christmas Tree decorations, cards and any number of things that you want to adorn for the festive season.
The designs are just adorable, stars, trees and Christmas bells and with the largest design being just over 5 inches, it will take just a quiet afternoon to whip one up.
Powell gives a few stitching instructions and fabric preparation, but to be honest this books is so simply explained even a complete novice can do it. With easy to read charts and two stitches this book, part of Search Press Books 20 to stitch range, would make an ideal gift.
I particularly liked the Starlit Stable and the Dancing Trees, they are all very effective and have a childlike quality to them.
Cross stitch is an easy craft to learn and this book is a good one to start with.
