Mollie Makes: Embroidery
15 new projects for you to make plus handy techniques, tricks and tips
The team behind Mollie Makes magazine have brought together all their favourite stitchers in a range of impressive disciplines from cross stitch to crewel work. They share their tips, stories and beautiful projects, inspiring us all to pick up a needle and thread. Will you try Laura Trimmell’s geometric squirrel or Nicole Vos Van Avezathe’s quirky cloud-shaped pillow? Perhaps Clare Youngs’ beautiful Folk Art throw is more your thing? With seven different stitches to practise, it’s one to stretch your skills for sure.
That’s what we love about this collection – beginner or stitch-savvy, there really is something for everyone who fancies having a go. If you are new to embroidery, the techniques section of the book contains all the step-by-step guidance you need to get started. So thread your needle, choose your fabric and read on – give it a couple of hours and you’ll be a practising stitch witch! Jam-packed with hints, tips and techniques, you’ll soon be tackling more than the basic stitches – you’ll be looping and lacing like the best of them. Why not have a go at silk ribbon embroidery, crewelwork, canvaswork or Bargello? Hoops at the ready!
