Alice Joyce
Presented here are a variety of projects (including boxes, purses, and cushions, as well as keepsakes for a wedding, a baby's birth, and a bedroom or bath), illustrated in abundant color photographs, that incorporate appealing combinations of fabrics, laces, ribbons, and decorative attachments that imbue the items with a nostalgic elegance. These useful as well as purely decorative items are generally easy to make. Still, the projects have a refined quality due to the shimmery materials used--swatches of velvet", organza, metallic cords and threads, dried roses, and romantic images cut from antique cards, for instance. Templates, patterns, and instructions for embroidery stitches are included, so no previous experience will be necessary before embarking on any given project.
