Postcard Reviews August 2020
Thread Doodling is a very pretty book and it has the most beautiful designs to stitch.
Each project has a different technique and the patterns are transfered using the iron on transfers which are included in the book. Each transfer can be used up to ten times.
The ‘stitcheries’ are not very large, but they are perfectly sized for some quiet time, just to sit and sew. Each one can be changed in look just by using a different colour thread or using a different stitch.
I love the idea of free form stitching, you can let your imagination flow and Thread Doodling is ideal for this kind of sewing.
There are over 20 ideas and patterns to create. You can make them into samplers, cushions or use the ideas to adorn your clothing. I think denim jackets look great with embroidery doodles on them.
There is a stitch dictionary, with the stiches you will need to know, the author has used DMC threads, but as always you can use whatever you have in your stash.
Whether you are a beginner or an advanced stitcher, this book will inspire you to sew, as it is filled with beautiful patterns and is complete with hints and tips to help guide you.
