Sew & Stitch Embroidery - 20+ Simple Sewing Projects with 30+ Fresh Hand Embroidery Designs
[Alyssa Thomas - Penguin & Fish]
- Loaded with value! 20 projects, 20 variations, and 30+ brand-new designs.
- 20 x 30 iron on transfer sheet is a strong bonus; readers can access the designs then and there without the fuss of printing, tracing and transferring that a CD-ROM or on-page line drawing template would entail.
- Teaches traditional embroidery techniques ("small stitches") and introduces a unique, new technique ("big stitches"), that's both quick and appealing.
- Showcases the dexterity/flexibility of embroidery (quilting, beading, working on felt, working on patterned fabric), inspiring readers to get creative.
With the sewing market opening up to the new embroidery flosses, sewists are looking for fresh ways to incorporate embroidery into their sewing projects. Other books provide readers with designs, but Sew & Stitch Embroidery
provides 20 simple sewing projects (and 20+ variations!) that showcase the flexibility of embroidery. There's an overview of embroidery techniques, and introduction to the shockingly simple but revelatory "big stitches" technique, and clearly illustrated sewing instruction for each project. The best part? 30+ brand new embroidery designs on an insert that uses iron-on transfer ink. So simple and easy to get inspired, to get started, and to get creative.
