Add to Basket
Book Description

Learn how to kick-start your creativity and make your own colourful and expressive designs using appliqué and embroidery on felted wool fabric.

Using her own detailed and imaginative embroidery as examples Karin Derland teaches you how to go about creating your own designs. Karin shares plenty of instruction and helpful tips on making colour choices, how to apply ribbons, mirrors and other accessories, making and using cardboard templates for appliqué shapes and how to combine different types of threads and stitches for best effect.

Sketches, diagrams and detailed photographs of different types of embroidered pillows, cushions, cases and other items will give you a head start on creating and applying your own designs.

The book also offers plenty of inspirational images through Karin's colourful embroidery that draws on both the Swedish and Indian traditions. These can be used as a library of ideas when creating your own work.
