Combining beautiful colored threads and cloths with stylish embellishments, these unique designs offer embroiderers at all levels a chance to create heirloom treasures. Techniques such as drawn thread, needleweaving and surface stitches are explained and put to lovely use in gifts and decorative items from bookmarks, greeting cards, and eyeglass cases to an apricot cushion and a drawstring purse decorated with roses. Small and medium size projects allow stitchers to practice basic techniques in open work and surface stitches such as whipped chain, bullion stitch, buttonhole shading, and others. Finishing techniques include tassels, plaited fringe, ladder stitch, and more.
