This review is from: Stitched in Scandinavia: 39 Contemporary Embroidery Projects (Paperback)
I was looking for inspiration and I really loved the patterns in this book. Simple, but really stylish. Good for beginners and experienced embroiderers alike.

This review is from: Stitched in Scandinavia: 39 Contemporary Embroidery Projects (Paperback)
Unique Scandinavian-style stitch design to add originality to your home and clothing. 39 contemporary embroidery projects will get your creativity flowing to make beautiful gifts or beautify your surroundings. This book discusses Scandinavian stitch styles. The projects are stitch for the home, which includes tea towels, apron, pot holders, cushions, tea cosy, tableware, pillowcases, pictures, bags, notebook covers and more. When your home looks as pretty as can be, you can start embroidering your clothes. Ideas include a hoodie, leggings, t-shirt, underwear and children's makes. I love the stitching and the ideas, however, all the photographs are at the front of the book and all the instructions are at the back of the book. I dislike that fragmentation. At the back you will find a section on materials and equipment to complete the projects plus how to transfer designs. There is also an embroidery tutorial. There are no charts for the designs, they are simply line drawings and even though I am an experienced embroiderer, I find this not the easiest method. Follow the instructions to transfer the design, and all should work like magic.

4.0 out of 5 stars just beautiful, 9 Aug 2014
This review is from: Stitched in Scandinavia: 39 Contemporary Embroidery Projects (Paperback)
This a gorgeous book with lovely projects and basic explanation of the techniques. My only watchout is that for complete beginners it is a tiny bit difficult to understand what techniques are used in every design as it is not super detailed in that sense. And as opposed to many magazines, it does not give the specific colour references for the floss.

5.0 out of 5 stars A SCANDANAVIAN WONDER, 3 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stitched in Scandinavia: 39 Contemporary Embroidery Projects (Paperback)
For those wishing to adapt to the simplicity that is Scandanavian style, this is a lovely book.

The projects are simple, easy to follow and beautifully illustrated and the guidelines clear for even the notice like me.

Also a lovely present for anyone wishing to try this type of home craft work.

A beauty of a book.
