A follow-up to the very popular book, Raised Embroidery: A Practical Guide to Decorative Stumpwork, this book combines traditional embroidery with more modern fabric dyes and machine stitches. After a general introduction, each chapter contains a small selection of projects specially designed to demonstrate particular skills. The techniques required for each individual project, such as creating bodies and faces, making realistic tools or instruments, layered clothing or hats, and the order of assembling the work, are all clearly described and shown in step-by-step photographs. The result is a book that is both inspiring and highly instructive.
