There are also patterns for quaint items such as tuck-in toys, needle cases and refrigerator bags.
There are full size patterns, step-by-step photos, tips about how to tint fabrics with crayons, an embroidery stitch chart and a brief history behind every design. Each make this delightful book a valuable addition to any crafting library.
