Overview

Doodle Stitching: Fresh & Fun Embroidery for Beginners by Aimee Ray


Asian-inspired lampshades embellished with flying fish. Canvas sneakers decorated with pink and white swirls. A pretty pillow adorned with a sleeping bunny, sweetly curled up. All it takes to create these appealing projects—or add charming embroidered touches in no time at all—are a few simple stitches, some easy techniques, and the nearly 30 projects in this book. Begin by learning several styles for outlining, filling, decorating, and appliqué. Find out about floss, fancy threads, fabrics, and needles. Get the scoop on hoops, and the lowdown on transferring your very own designs onto every type of fabric. The fresh ideas, witty patterns, and clever color illustrations take stitchers from novice to accomplished in a blink of the eye!

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!
