    Embroidery – this is a craft that women have been using to

    Embroidery – this is a craft that women have been using to decorate items for many, many years. This book gives you 35 projects to bring this craft into your home or add to a gift you are giving.

    The sections contain information on what tools you will need, six pages of different embroidery stitches and how to work them and three ways to get the designs from the book onto your project.

    The projects are listed in sections such as Eat, Sleep, Work, etc. The Eat section contains such things as a coffee cozy, a bib and kitchen towels. As you can tell, each section is filled with something related to the name of that section.

    Grab a needle and some embroidery floss and add your own personal touch to the next gift you give.

    Fun and Simple

    Sometimes I come across a book that just makes me smile and this is one of those. It is full of fun and easy embroidery projects that add a whimsical embellshment to clothing and home decor, or for gifts. Projects include toys, cards, clothing, baby items such as bibs and blankets, home accessories such as placemants, pillows, towels, lampshades, and framed pictures; bags and totes, and fabric-lined boxes.

    There are lots of color photographs that made me want to make every project, along with clear instructions and diagrams for the various embroidery stitches that anyone can learn. Full-size color embroidery designs used in the projects are included for transfer or tracing with instructions on how to do that, and can be photocopied bigger or smaller as desired. Some of the projects require sewing the item before adding the embroidery (such as placemats, pillows, towels, box liners) and instructions are given for those as measurements for cutting the fabric and how to sew them. Some of the embroidery is done on felt, some on other kinds of fabric.

    The designs are simple but the results are charming, in my opinion. I don't have grandkids yet but found many ideas for toys and adding a unique touch to ready-made clothing and bibs. I especially liked the embroidery on children's tennis shoes and the cup cozies.

    The ideas in this book remind me of the kind of embroidery my grandma used to do on tea towels and pillow cases so maybe that's one reason it appealed to me, but I think anyone who likes to embroider will find the projects enjoyable.

    I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
