When we talk about charts
the first technique which comes up to our mind is undoubtedly embroidery. It can be either cross-stitch or needlepoint or traditional embroidery, the art of threads and needle is the protagonist of the charts
By the way, these pages rich in instructions, graphs and images can guide us also in creating projects which are not exclusively linked to the embroidery world.
So, here are from the United States some charts created and written to make quilts, bags and covers. These are the products by Fig Tree & Co.
, specialized in patchwork and famous for its masterpieces created by designers like Joanna Figueroa. Charts, threads, a quilting needle, some fabrics of your choice and a lot of fantasy: this is what you need!
In fact, differently form the more classical charts for embroidery, these projects can be made with all types of fabrics and/or threads. The designers just give some pieces of advice, by suggesting some color and motif combinations, but they do not impose at all particular fabrics of a specific brand. From this fact derives the versatility of these charts which will help you to create some unique and customized projects.
Make a lot of little and original cases for your accessories according to the instructions of Little Jellies
. Or customize the room of your children with quilts, pillows and puffs as in Whimsey Fresh
. Instead, a lot of bag patterns in Satchel for Two
, Easiest Handbags Ever
and Berry Sweet Bag
. The same goes with the traditional duvets or covers, like in Clovers
and in Jelly and Jam
From now on the word chart
we will associate not only cross-stitch!

credo che possano essere molto utili, soprattutto è difficile trovare delle pubblicazioni del genere, mi chiedo solo se contengono delle spiegazioni anche in italiano.......
