Richard Box presents 23 projects for all abilities, complete with step-by-step instructions, charts, and color photographs.
After a comprehensive section on materials and techniques, the chapters which follow introduce 12 different cats featuring several inspiring projects: both the main embroidery and a detail which can be used in an accessory such as a cushion, bag, or paperweight. The designs are worked in a variety of threads and color schemes, and each one is accompanied by the original full-color painting, design considerations, detailed instructions, black and white and color charts, and color photographs. The 23 designs range from beginner level to advanced, and feature a variety of cat breeds, from the fiery orange of Ginger the kitten to the grey and violet tones of Jenks, the Maine Coon cat.
