Format: Paperback
This is a marvellously inspirational book, teaching a simple method of creating items that can look sensational. All you need, once you've mastered the technique, is your own imagination. In just a few weeks I've done everything from an ultra modern-looking crazy patchwork box to one encrusted with silk roses, all based on the technique shown here. A must for anyone with an interest in embroidery.

Format: Paperback
The work in this book is stunning. From materials needed, design tips and creating a template, this book gives you the essential techniques for you to make embroidered boxes. Different sizes and shapes of boxes are given. Four and five-sided boxes, caskets and book boxes are all created within these inspiring pages. This book really made me want to experiment with the techniques. Recommended. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The boxes featured in this book are absolutely gorgeous. In addition there are some really terrific ideas on decorations, cords, braids and so on to incorporate into your box - some I knew already, others are quite new and I see these ideas being useful in many many other projects. The illustrations are superb and the instructions seem clear - that said, I have just made my first pattern (which was very easy) and am in the process of acquiring some of the materials I think I will need so I haven't actually made a box up yet but, having read and reread the instructions I don't think it will be too difficult - obviously it is a bit of a fiddle but then what textile work isn't. I bought this book on a bit of a whim but am really pleased that I did - Christmas presents coming up (I hope). One of the good things about these small items is that you can use up lots of the little bits of pretty fabric and thread every textile worker accumulates and hoards with the idea that they will come in useful for something some day. Well, it looks like the day has come for at least some of these too pretty to throw away scraps. Of course, as with every book I buy, there will be a few new items to be bought:). All in all a really lovely book, beautifully produced and a must for every embroiderer/textile enthusiast who just loves little boxes.

I was so happy to receive my book from Amazon so quickly, as I was working on a project for my embroidery course and hadn't much time left to complete the item. The book was helpful and I was able to gather some ideas to adapt for what was needed.
