This week I have the pleasure of giving away 2 copies of Stitched for Fun – 35 Easy and Adorable Embroidery Projects by Fiona Goble to our lucky readers!
As I hold this book from Martingale Publishing in my hands and flip through the pages, I can’t help but smile at the adorable motifs used in the projects, as well as the fresh, bright colors used in the stitched models.
Nearly anything can be enhanced with this collection of simple, fun motifs, as you can see from the photos posted here. Using surface embroidery stitches, you can turn an everyday, ordinary item into a work of art!
You can embellish clothing, household items, aprons and other things by tracing one of the pretty patterns and working the designs in simple, basic embroidery stitches using DMC Embroidery Floss as shown in the samples, or use other types of embroidery thread to add some sparkle or shine to your projects.
All of the stitches used in the book are clearly illustrated, and the instructions are well-written and easy to follow, making this book perfect for beginning stitchers. Experienced stitchers will appreciate the variety of projects presented.
And be sure to check out Martingale’s Blog for news about their books and free projects, and stitching tips for a wide variety of fabrics and fiber crafts. They’ll also be hosting a giveaway featuring a selection of DMC threads and needlework accessories!
I’ll be choosing two lucky winners next week.
