Overview
-

Start embroidering your own clothes with inspiration from Connie’s book full of detailed embroidery projects that will have you captivated by the technique of free-motion embroidery. Starting with simple ideas that can be done in an afternoon to get you warmed up, and moving onto more complex, detailed projects that will keep you busy for weeks! Finished pieces like tops, denim and accessories will inspire you to start decorating your own clothes and fill your wardrobe with totally unique, upcycled pieces that no one else owns.

The book is split into four parts, each with a range of embroidery projects to get you inspired to either patch up that old top with a hole or stain, or create something outstanding on that staple denim jacket you’ve been wanting to customize for ages - Don’t throw away something just because it’s no longer new!

The book will cover all skill levels - from easy patches using straight lines, to big pieces with lots of color and shading for maximum impact and detail! There’s something for everyone to start with before challenging yourself and progressing onto more advanced designs.

Each project will contain beautiful imagery of the design process from start to finish, showing how an embroidered garment is created from the initial thought processes and drawing stages, right through to the stitching techniques and the finished pieces.

REVIEWS

“Step-by-step photos accompany each project, and Mabbott’s can-do attitude shines: “Once you’ve got the knack of working with materials like this you will be able to customise anything.” This is just right for crafters ready to ditch fast fashion.”
