Overview

Miniature Needle Painting Embroidery: Vintage Portraits, Florals & Birds by Trish Burr


Small, embroidered "paintings" can have all the detail, form, and beauty of a larger piece—except they're much quicker to stitch! These fresh and appealing designs all capture the pretty, romantic images typical of the Victorian and post-Victorian eras. All the projects—which include traditional portraits, birds, and flowers—have detailed thread diagrams, and easy-to-follow instructions teach the basic stitches.
