Doodle-Stitching: Fresh & Fun Embroidery for Beginnersby Aimee Ray
Synopses & Reviews
For the embroiderer who appreciates the value of beautiful stitches but also likes to break a few rules along the way, Rebecca Ringquistandrsquo;s Embroidery Workshops is a refreshing new resource for both standard and out-of-the-box techniques.
Based on the popular classes Ringquist leads across the country, Rebecca Ringquistandrsquo;s Embroidery Workshops teaches everything from the andldquo;properandrdquo; way to form a French knot and transfer a design to a canvas to new ways to stitch three-dimensionally, work with nontraditional threads and fabrics, draw with thread freeform, and mix and match machine- and hand-stitching. Also featured are instructions for 20 innovative projects, including a cloth sampler designed especially for the book (and packaged in an envelope at the back), table linens, wall art, and clothing embellishments.
This fresh, fun foray into the world of embroidery showcases ten prominent designers, all acclaimed for their embroidery and stitching artistry. Each one shares instructions for three projects, along with ten beautiful and whimsical embroidery motifs for readers to use in their own work. The appealing themes include Kitschy Kitchen, Nautical, Camping, Robots, Sweet Hearts, and more.
The featured designers include: Carina Envoldsen-Harris (author of Stitched Blooms, Lark), Mollie Johanson (who runs the Etsy store Wild Olive), Charlotte Lyons (Tilly fabric design), and more.
Embroiderers love Aimee Ray's "Doodling" collectionsand#8212;and this one-stop resource contains 300 of her most popular motifs, including nearly 30 entirely new designs. Just tear out the perforated pages, iron the reusable patterns onto fabric, grab a needle and thread, and start stitching animals, flowers, letters, balloons, embellishments, and more! There's no tracing or photocopying required, and a handy, sealable envelope stores the motifs for future applications. It's quick, easy, and fun to do.
