Cute alert! Embroidery basics and adorable projects from the editors of Mollie Makes.

Embroidery has been experiencing a renaissance among sewists and DIY crafters and is becoming more and more popular among young crafters. This adorable new book from the team behind Mollie Makes is all one needs to learn how to embroider. Aimed at complete beginners, it's also perfect for those who have completed their first projects and are looking to move on.

Basic embroidery stitches are clearly explained with step-by-step illustrations. Mollie Makes Embroidery covers how to work from charted designs as well as following freeform or "doodle stitching". There are also brief tutorials on crewel work, ribbon embroidery, bargello, cross stitch, and even machine embroidery. This is far from fusty, old-fashioned samplers however. Over 15 contemporary projects from an international range of designers demonstrate the different ways in which embroidery stitches can be used. The book focuses on ideas for using needlework pieces around the home: pillows, table runners, ornaments, wall decor, etc., but also includes jewelry, bags, and gift ideas.

Good illustrations of the basic stitches for beginners, and plenty of stitches I had never seen or tried.

The projects weren't very cute, but the 40 pages of stitches were interesting, many I've never seen before and I have a lot of embroidery books.

This book is a compilation of different designers from the web. It contains a wide range of projects (greeting cards, Kindle case, iPhone case, hoop art, etc.) which are mostly all cute / whimsical. I was impressed at how many stitches it wants to teach you - it contains instructions over over 60 embroidery stitches, and then has several stitches that are more unique to crewelwork and ribbon embroidery.

Lovely little book. Lots of techniques explained in an easy-to-follow in a well laid-out, pretty book. Some patterns included. Some designs rather dated/old-school if that's your thing.
