4.0 out of 5 stars for beginners, 19 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Stitched Textiles: Flowers (Paperback)
Here is another fabulous book in the Stitched Textiles series. I know textile artists, especially students will embrace the work in this book. The theme of flowers is a popular one and the techniques shown are widely used in textiles. There is a good introduction with all the materials you need plus an excellent design section. In dyeing, you will learn how to dye graded colour fabrics using a tray and small plastic bags. The book also shows discharge printing, monoprinting, block printing, resists, masks and stencils, applique, bondaweb, foiling, photo transfer printing as well as hand and machine stitching. All the techniques are basic and explained relatively briefly. There are 5 projects which show examples of the techniques in use. The projects are pincushion using a stencil, cushion using printing, daisy hanging using applique, a needlecase with painted bondaweb, honesty seed panel using photocopies. This is a good book introducing some useful textile techniques, mainly suitable for the beginner. The whole book is well supported by good design and photographs and step by step instructions.
