About this item
This collection of 64 beautiful romantic motifs and accompanying transfers provides a must-have source of design ideas for anyone who enjoys stitching. The designs include hearts, flowers, swallows, wedding rings and butterflies and cover a range of sizes and styles. The book is broken down into four main sections: the key stitches and techniques, the samplers, the projects and finally the cut-out transfers.Each design is shown as a sampler sewn by Carina in colors and stitches of her choice. Carina has a wonderful eye for color and design, so the samplers will encourage those who might need some guidance. Clear instructions accompany each motif, with information given on the DMC thread colors and the embroidery stitches used. Those who prefer to create their own look can do so by simply adapting the colors and stitches. The book then showcases twelve beautiful projects embroidered with designs from the samplers and stitched by Carina in different colorways to the originals. These are intended to inspire: whether you are looking for a small, dainty motif to decorate a child's dress or sunhat, or a large, bold design to add impact to a pillow or tea towel, there will be a design in this book that matches your chosen item to give it a touch of contemporary homemade style. Finally, the transfers at the back can be cut out and ironed up to ten times each; the book contains a handy pocket at the back for storing cut-out designs.There are notes on the materials and basic techniques used at the start of the book, including how to successfully use the transfers and how to frame up a ring frame. With just eleven simple embroidery stitches to choose from, all with clear, step-by-step diagrams, even those new to stitching will be able to tackle all the designs provided. This is a must-have resource for sewers of all abilities.
