Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Doodle Stitching is a truly cute book...full of practical and whimsical projects that are neither boring or stodgy.... The projects section of Doodle Stitching shows how to make so many ordinary items special, such as pillow cases, skirts, shoes, shirts, scarves, boxer shorts and napkins. For those that like to take their creativity and sewing skills that little bit further, there are small projects to make and embroider,... This is a good book for beginner embroiderers that would like a fun place to start, for more experienced embroiderers that might have become a bit jaded with more traditional patterns and could do with some light inspiration, and for anyone that likes to look at well-designed craft books full of cute projects."--Whipup.net

Very basic projects. If you know the basics, this is not for you, but a good starting point for teens seeking to learn the basics of embroidery. The projects seems geared toward teens.

This is a great book that covers basic embroidery stitches with clear pictures and instructions. There are also many projects included, and even if you don't plan on using the patterns on the project, the instructions are clear enough that you could do the project but adapt it with different designs. You have to have a clear understanding of how to transfer patterns because none of the patterns included are in iron-on ready format. Some of the projects even require simply sewing but no sewing machine, which is good. I honestly was hoping for a book that would explain more about 'doodle stitching' and tapping into my creativity to make my own designs.

I bought this book as a gift for my nieces (ages 12-16). The ideas are fun and the illustrations are very clear and helpful. By the next day, they were already using patterns from the book to do beautiful embroidery!
