This book is a definite must-have for all ribbon embroidery and stumpwork fans, and you will be able to use the projects in other crafts too!
This substantial 160-page book is packed with new ideas and techniques that will appeal not only to all embroiderers but also to crafters such as quilters, knitters, fabric painters, scrapbookers or home décor enthusiasts.
Included in each panel are creative ideas for a variety of crafts. More and more crafters are wishing to learn how to combine ribbon embroidery and (especially stumpwork) with other crafts, to make their own distinctive works of art. This book will help you do just that!
There are 17 panels in this magnificent sampler and 60 different elements, with a clear stitch gallery to guide you. Flowers and creatures from all over the world (many that have not been made before) are included in the sampler, so there is something for everyone!
Each flower and insect is shown systematically with clear photographs. A number of panels (like the Honeysuckle, ants, butterflies, Freesias and Sunflowers) are for the complete beginner to this art form, other panels are suitable for intermediate and advanced embroiderers, so this book is an ideal learning tool for embroiderers wishing to teach themselves from scratch.
Embroider the complete sampler or a single panel for smaller projects. Alternatively, choose just one feature from a panel (a beautiful moth or a bunch of English Bluebells for instance) and add these to your own design, whatever craft you are busy with! The more advanced embroiderer will find this a practical book full of new techniques in Ribbonwork, Stumpwork, Barbola, Ribbon Appliqué, and Trapunto.
