Posted March 23, 2007
When I saw this booklet, I couldn¿t wait to get my embroidery floss and needle out. My grandchildren all wanted their initials on various jackets, sweatshirts and pillowcases. The littlest boys wanted Space, Bugs All Around or the Creepy Crawly letters while the new baby¿s mom wanted Noah¿s Ark on her little girl¿s sweater. The older kids wanted Fiesta Folk Art which looks like a Mexican Fiesta and our ¿little princess¿ wanted In the Garden letters on her pillowcase and Once Upon a Time on a blanket to go in her play castle. Needless to say, I had to get busy. The graphics were large enough for my ¿over 40¿ eyes to read without having to get new glasses and with the color prints of the letters on the same page, even if I had a question of which symbol was what, the photo made sure I didn¿t! The last page in the book gives general instructions on working with carts and explanation of stitches in case I forgot what Mom taught me as a small girl. I have a feeling that as the children grow and their tastes change, I will be using this book for a long while. I can see my ¿off to college¿ grandchildren wanting an elegant initial on a blouse or pillowcase for their life on campus!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
