Storybook Favorites in Cross-stitch offers designs for many book characters, from the immensely popular Paddington Bear, Madeline, and Babar the elephant to such classics as Winnie-the-Pooh, Peter Rabbit, and Peter Pan. For each character, there are suggested design projects - a birth sampler, a picture frame, a puppet, or some other gift item - to mark a baby's arrival, a toddler's birthday, or a child's achievement. Detailed instructions are provided for each of these projects, and all finished items are beautifully photographed.

This absolutely my favorite cross-stitch pattern book! It contains children's illustrations done in very good patterns (your finished design looks very much like the book illustrations!). Characters covered here are all very adorable! Classic Pooh and Peter Rabbit (surprise, surprise) are almost outshined by Miffy, Duck (and friends), Apple Tree Farm, Angelina Ballerina, Babar . . . Gift item instructions are included, as well as two different alphabet fonts for personalization. I have many alphabet books, but have found myself going back to these really nice fonts! All in all, this book is a real class-act, and contains much prettier than any designs I've found in my local craft shops. I wish the sequel (More Storybook Favorites) was available in the US!!
