For crafters who like their stitching with a twist, this book provides original designs with a wicked spin, and reworks cute craft imagery, including genuine vintage embroidery motifs, so that they cross over to the dark side. Think pretty rose bouquets with a gun poking out, a cute row of ducklings followed by a fox chomping on the straggler, or an old-fashioned teddy bear with a stake through the heart. The book contains 30 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.
I absolutely adore this book! Have made several of the items out of it now including a few gifts that friends loved! I was so happy to find some patterns that suited my style and tastes as opposed to the typical puppies and kittens. If you're interested in alternative cross-stitch than I would highly recommend this book! Only downside is that the squares in the patters are very small and a bit hard to see sometimes, and some patterns have been printed across two pages, which makes it hard to photocopy if you don't want to work with the book in your lap! But other than that a great buy :)
