Embroidery Designs: Natural Splendor has everything you need to start embellishing anything and everything with modern, chic embroidery. These aren't the stuffy flowers you used to see at your grandmas house. This 64-page, fully illustrated guide book puts a new twist on this old art.
Even if you're completely new to needlework and embroidery, Embroidery Designs: Natural Splendor is a great starting point, because it opens with a how-to on basic embroidery stitches. From there, the step-by-step projects will show you how to add designs from nature to purses, pillows, skirts, backpacks, and just about anything you can get a needle through!
Just a few of the projects included in this book include creating a hummingbird, dragonfly, ladybug, and bumblebee to add to your wardrobe or accessories.
