As Miss Woolly can attest, cross-stitch is the perfect hobby for today's no-sparetime crafter. Learn just one master stitch and you can make all the designs in this book--and create your own unique designs, too. Miss Woolly's Mini Cross-Stitch Kit provides you with enough fabric, floss, and needles to complete 6 mini cross-stitch projects, plus a full-color instructional book that covers basic technique and troubleshooting tips and provides instructions for more than a dozen different projects, from Cheeky Caterpillar to Burger Time to Hoot! the Owl. The book also invites you to create your own cute cross-stitch designs (a basic alphabet and handy grid make it easy) and shares lots of fun ideas for presenting your creations--in a picture frame, on a button or magnet, or as part of a cushion or sampler, to name a few! With Miss Woolly as your teacher, you'll stitch up absurdly cute cross-stitch designs in no time and present them with flair!
