All the flowers can be made using a basic stitch library of less than 10 stitches, making the book accessible to a broad audience. Flowers are one of the most popular themes across all crafts and this title combines these two elements to create a compelling offering that will appeal to stitchers of all abilities. Modern hand embroiderer Kristen Gula will show you how to create 200 flowers, leaves and foliage from a stitch library of less than 10 embroidery stitches. As well as the step tutorials for the flowers it will also include 10 contemporary sewing projects for home décor items and accessories that showcase the embroidery.
