Book Review - Makoto's Cross-Stitch Super Collection

Hi everybody, beefranck here! I was lucky enough to get my hands on a copy of Makoto's Cross Stitch Super Collection recently and I wanted to give you the scoop on this great book.

The cover clearly states that the contents of the book are "not lame!" and "very cool!" Well, I'm pleased to report that IT'S ALL TRUE! The book has loads of fun cross stitch patterns and projects. There's bugs and robots and astronauts, there's stuff to stitch on clothes and hats, and there's totally unique projects like a tiger skin doormat. Yup, you read that right - a tiger skin doormat. :)

The book has clear and helpful instructions, so it's something that both newbies and seasoned stitchers can enjoy. I decided to whip up one of the robot patterns myself.

Beep. Boop boop. Beep.

It was a lot of fun and only took a few hours. There's a lot of projects just like this one in the book - go get yours here!

  1. Thanks for that review. This does look like a fun book.
    I suppose we often forget that sometimes boys like to stitch, and sometimes girls like things that aren't flowers.
