Asian-inspired lampshades embellished with flying fish. Canvas sneakers decorated with pink and white swirls. A pretty pillow adorned with a sleeping bunny, sweetly curled up. All it takes to create these appealing projects--or add charming embroidered touches in no time at all--are a few simple stitches, some easy techniques, and the nearly 30 projects in this book. Begin by learning several styles for outlining, filling, decorating, and appliqué. Find out about floss, fancy threads, fabrics, and needles. Get the scoop on hoops, and the lowdown on transferring your very own designs onto every type of fabric. The fresh ideas, witty patterns, and clever color illustrations take stitchers from novice to accomplished in a blink of the eye!

None of the projects were for me. It is a lovely book to look through

This book is great if you're just picking up embroidery. The author gives clear details on various stitches, though the projects, for me, anyway, weren't particularly great, though did lead to my own ideas! Highly recommended.
