The small patterns enable easy experimentation with new techniques, tools, and supplies without a large investment of time or materials.

This collection of over 101 exquisite patterns enables crafters to try their hand at relief carving, wood burning, tole painting, and other visual crafts. While small in sixe, each design is large in style and perfect for adorning an endless variety of items- such as jewelry boxes, nameplates, house number plaques, wall hangings, trunks, tables, and much more. With landscapes, wildlife, sailing ships, fruit and flora, architectural scrolls, Celtic-inspired designs, and handsome corner motifs, there's a pattern inside for any project you can imagine.
