Birds, Butterflies & Little Bugs in Cross Stitch
Oiseaux, Papillons & Petites Bêtes au point de croix, by Véronique Enginer, ©Libella, Paris, 2017
Let yourself be charmed by the watercolors and lovely cross stitch patterns as you discover an enchanting universe that will immerse you in the heart of nature as seen like an entomologist.
Organized around 3 themes - insects and small animals, butterflies, birds - this exquisite book reveals a magnificent figurative work: a perfect mastery in the drawing and a remarkable sense of color.
This book includes 48 embroidery charts representing a multitude of birds, butterflies and insects: chickadees, birds of paradise or nightingales, beetles and ants, foraging bees, day or night butterflies.
Birds, Butterflies & Little Bugs also has instructions and inspiration for 15 original and refined projects: case and pouch, pie holder, hanger cover, cushion, shirt, tote bag and more.
Also includes six watercolors - preparatory sketches by the author - included in the book and printed on quality paper like old collector boards.
** Written in French, but projects and patterns are decipherable through excellent photography and colorful cross stitch charts. All patterns specify DMC 6-strand (No. 25) floss colors. **
