It's called "I Can Cross Stitch" and is available through Annie's Publishing. It's a basic instructional book for tweens and teens with some fun projects on a variety of fabrics and products. (It SAYS "17 designs" but in fact it is 17 projects with a total of 27 designs. Or at least I did 27 designs; not saying if they all made the cut.) They range from little things like push pin covers and Altoid tins to purses and pillows.I don't know if it is in stores yet but you can get it online here:… and probably Amazon and other places as well. It's also available as an electronic download.

I had a lot of fun designing this book and I think any beginning stitcher will enjoy learning with it. I tried to make all the projects very fun and funky but not overwhelming. There are a lot of little things that are quick to make and easy to learn on. I personally recommend starting with the perforated paper designs (a sheet of perf paper is included with the book) as stitching on perf paper can be much easier than fabric (you can see the holes really well) and it teaches you important skills like keeping your tension from getting too tight (you'll crumple the paper if you don't!) All of the designs are basic whole stitches and most take very few colors. As you learn and progress, you can work up to larger designs with more color changes. It's a book that grows with your experience.

If you've ever wanted to learn to cross stitch but found most patterns either too complicated or too childish and dull, give these a shot. And let me know what you think!
