This is probably my LEAST favorite Doodle Stitching book. There is a CD with 450 embroidery patterns, but more than 300 of those are not really embroidery patterns. For example, 52 of them are an uppercase and lowercase alphabet and another 100 are fruits and vegetables and other food items. These same "patterns" are in 50 pages at the back of the book which was kind of a waste of space. The patterns fall into the following categories/folders on the CD: alphabet, asian, baby, celebrations, circus, embellishments, farm animals, flowers, food, fruits and veggies, garden, space, sweet shoppe, trees and leaves, under the sea, weather, winged wonders, woodland animals, and woodland fairytale. There are only about 10 projects and I would never do any of them. The ones worth looking at are the farm animals, woodland animals, tree house, sea creatures, and gnomes, about 20 patterns total, certainly not worth the price of the book. Also, these are all outlines only.

If you are looking for cute outlines of objects to embroider, simply search online for images using "png" and the name of the object you're searching for. e.g. "squirrel png" or "squirrel png icon". PNG images are transparent and used for icons and make a great source for embroidery patterns.
