Back Cover Information

Flower Fairies™ are a vision of elegance and beauty and they have captivated children and adults alike for more than 85 years and now, for the first time, five of her beautiful fairies are translated into exquisite ribbon and stumpwork embroideries. With numerous new ideas and techniques, this book will appeal to all embroiderers. Easy to follow, step-by-step instructions will show you how to:

  • Embroider the pretty flowers and leaves in silk and organza ribbon
  • Use organza and silky threads to make the fairies' delicate stumpwork wings
  • Make applique leaves and petals using organza and silk ribbon
  • Create charming stumpwork insects
  • Dress the fairies in layers of organza and embroider their hair
  • Make fairies' clothing using long and short stitch
  • Create three-dimensional designs using color, texture and shapes

The five Flower Fairies™ taught in this book are the Periwinkle Fairy, Black Medick Fairies, White Clover Fairy, Stork's Bill Fairy and the Red Clover Fairy.
