15 fun projects to inspire you to upcycle the clothes you already own by Connie Mabbott

Add to Basket
Book Description

Start embroidering your own clothes with Connie Mabbott's book full of detailed embroidery projects that will have you captivated by the technique of free-motion embroidery. Starting with simple ideas that can be completed in an afternoon, and moving onto more complex, detailed projects that will keep you busy for weeks!

Finished pieces like tops, denim and accessories will inspire you to start decorating your own clothes and fill your wardrobe with totally unique, upcycled pieces that no one else owns. The book is split into four parts, each with a range of embroidery projects to show you how to patch up that old top with a hole or create an outstanding customized piece. You won’t need to throw away something just because it’s no longer new!

The book will cover all skill levels, from easy patches using straight lines, to big pieces with lots of colour and shading for maximum impact and detail. Each project contains beautiful imagery of the design, showing how an embroidered garment is created from the initial thought processes, right through to the stitching techniques and the finished pieces.
