Product Description

About the Author

Phil Davison is a London based patterncutter, who after taking time off from the couture fashion world, learned to crossstitch in Arkansas, where an elderly family friend taught him the basics. On returning to London, Phil was inspired to combine his newfound love of cross-stitch with his existing love of street art, so created his own brand, Urban Cross Stitch.

I love the designs and patterns in this book but wish more of them were included in the pull out package at the back as some of them are printed across the crease in the book and in order to do the pattern you need to break the spine!

HASH(0x9ba909f0) out of 5 stars fun idea, badly designed Dec 31 2013
By missmouseinthehouse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been stitching for almost 40 years and this is the first time I have ever seen designs like this. I love the idea and there are some great patterns and I see myself stitching several for people in my life. However, the book is badly designed. Most of the patterns you never get to see a picture of a fully done design. Several you have to guess at what else might be in the design. There may be a picture and a floss key but the pattern is in a pocket in the back of the book. Some smaller patterns are in the book itself but there is no way you can stitch from the book, you will have to cut the pages out of the book to follow the pattern. The patterns in the pocket in the back of the book are done on a very small grid. I will have to use a magnifying glass to be able to see the icons. One pattern, called Knife to the Heart, is just a blood splotch on a t-shirt and it takes 4 pages to show you the blood spot over and over, albeit the male model is very cute and probably worth the space, it could have been used to show more fully the Burlesque Zombie. And there is no knife in the pattern, I was kind of hoping for a 3-d effect of a knife partially impaled but its just a random blood splotch. Again, I will stitch some of them that remind me of certain people but it will take an effort on my part to organize it before it can be properly stitched. I would like to see more books with designs like this in the future but hope that they take some clues from "cutesy" cross stitch books when designing the next book.

HASH(0x9ba90a44) out of 5 stars Definately Different July 18 2011
By Hurricane Irene - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Why is it that cross stitch patterns designed by men are always my preference? Maybe because there are no unicorns, puppies or other oh-so-precious (and boring) choices here. I usually have to buy individual patterns to get designs more to my taste. This book is great: definately different. If, like me, you're sick of the cookie-cutter designs usually available, you'll love this book. Lots of truely twisted designs to appeal to those of us with slightly sinister tastes. These designs are wonderfully warped and there is even a pocket at the back of the book containing large charts for viewing ease - a nice little plus. I look forward with eager anticipation to the next collection from this author. Can't wait to see what he comes up with next!

Loved this book! Charts are clear and concise and VERY imaginative. So glad that I found out there are other Twisted Stitchers out there! I'm an avid stitcher and certainly have a mean streak so this is right up my alley.

HASH(0x9ba90c18) out of 5 stars The patterns really are unique and fun but super hard to read Dec 29 2014
By Victoria A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Points for creativity and that’s about it. The patterns really are unique and fun but super hard to read. I suppose I should have researched better before purchasing but I expected to see the patterns in color, and to actually see full complete pictures of the designs. I fear I may go blind trying to differentiate the super tiny symbols in black and white. Another reviewer (why didn't I read the reviews!) noted that you would have to remove the pages in order to use them and I completely agree. Overall I am pretty darn disappointed with the usability of this product.

HASH(0x9ba90e28) out of 5 stars Can't trace the grid becuz some are in the fold of the two pages...duh... Oct. 9 2014
By A. Niles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Grids/Tables are written on two pages....where the crease of the book goes so you cannot copy the grid/ table onto a sheet of paper...makes it really difficult if you do because of the fold of the hardcover book...liked most of the designs but did not like that I could not trace it accurately. Whomever laid this book out obviuosly does not do cross stitching!!!
