The Crafter's Pattern Sourcebook: 1,000 Classic Motifs for Every Craft from Around the World and Through the Ages by MacCarthy, Mary


Hardcover with DJ in Very Good (VG) condition. Please see our guide to book conditions for more details.

This dazzling sourcebook of motifs is packed with designs suitable for all the most popular crafts, from stenciling, decoupage, and stamping to cross stitch, applique, and knitting. Inspired by designs from around the world and through the ages, there are motifs to suit every requirement and taste. Whether stenciling a Shaker design onto a wall, embroidering Chinese symbols, or knitting a Scandinavian-style ski hat, you will find just the pattern you need. The motifs are arranged into easy-reference sections--North and South America, Ancient Greece and Rome, Egypt and Africa, the Mediterranean, Scandinavia, Britain, Northern Europe, and Asia--and each section opens with five projects introducing ideas for designs. Grids allow you to convert motifs into various craft designs, and there is a techniques chapter telling you exactly how to do it. With a thousand striking motifs to choose from, your only problem will be deciding which one to use!
