Improper Cross Stitch by Haley Pierson-Cox Charts & Books - Book

Profane, funny, and smart, Haley Pierson-Cox's Improper Cross-Stitch invites the modern crafter to bring personality and humour to their cross stitch projects. From a fully designed 'Damn it feels good to be a crafter' to the beautiful Art Deco inspired designs, Haley's patterns are fresh, lively and just what the crafter ordered. In this book, she'll introduce readers to the joys of stitching the naughty, the profane, the irreverent, and the just plain awesome. First, she starts with a basic lesson in cross-stitch technique, no previous experience required. Then, once readers know their way around an embroidery hoop and a skein of floss, the books moves on to the designs - 35 in total, ranging from hip, to nerdy, to ironically domestic - where Haley encourages crafters to embrace their inner snark with gleeful abandon.

Finally, the transfers at the back can be cut out and ironed up to ten times each; the book contains a handy pocket at the back for storing cut-out designs.

There are notes on the materials and basic techniques used at the start of the book, including how to successfully use the transfers and how to frame up a ring frame. With just eleven simple embroidery stitches to choose from, all with clear, step-by-step diagrams, even those new to stitching will be able to tackle all the designs provided.
