Romantic Motifs: Transfer & Stitch Carina Envoldsen-Harris
Pub: Search Press This collection of 64 beautiful romantic motifs and accompanying transfers provides a must-have source of design ideas for anyone who enjoys stitching. Featuring designs from hearts and flowers to swallows, wedding rings and butterflies, the book also includes twelve beautiful embroidered projects for inspiration. There are notes on the materials and basic techniques used at the start of the book, including how to successfully use the transfers and how to frame up a ring frame. With just eleven simple embroidery stitches to choose from, all with clear, step-by-step diagrams, even those new to stitching will be able to tackle all the designs provided.
This is a must-have resource for sewers of all abilities. This is a gem of a book for embroiderers..
With over 60 designs, each double page is dedicated to the design, thread key and method to bring to life the beautiful flowers, hearts, birds and borders. The designs are a good size and Romantic Motifs comes together with… an iron on template, that is reusable and a color and image page.. which can be used with a ‘light box’ for darker fabrics. (the book does not suggest this).There are stitch guides and material suggestions and Carina Envoldsen-Harris has put the projects together with some fabulous ideas. I love her idea of a sampler using all of the motifs. This is a very pretty book and would make a gorgeous gift. The craft itself is not difficult to learn so even someone just stating would find this book delightful I think the only problem is which one to do first.
