If there’s one thing that can be said about the readers (or at least the readers of Book Riot), it’s this: many of them are avid artisans as well. There is a good chance that many will choose to do things while listening to an audiobook, thus creating reading time while at the same time. too do something. Given the popularity of this roundup of book cross stitch patterns, it’s time to add some more badass literary cross stitch patterns that readers might want to try. This time I developed and added some awesome literary embroidery designs. The basic theme being that these needle and thread designs are done on hoops and most are displayed perfectly there as well. Most of these book hoop designs are downloadable templates meaning you will get the template and provide your own tools. The ones that are kits, I noted.
