Back Cover Information

An inspirational collection of decorative patterns, pictures, banners, borders and alphabets. Create original embroideries and enhance your needlecraft projects with these beautiful designs.

All the designs have been specially chosen to inspire embroiderers to develop ideas and create their own work.


The illustrations here can be brought to life in many different ways with a whole range of stitches and techniques. You do not have to be a skilled artist to create an original piece of work when using this book, but can interpret your chosen design and develop it using the wonderful range of threads. Chose fabrics that compliment the design. The beauty of embroidery is in the way the stitches are worked, the play of light on the threads, and the textured or smooth contrast with the fabric surface.

You will find a profusion of flowers, plants and trees, rose borders, sunflower frames, stylized grapevines, orange trees and more. Fantasy figures offer exciting challenges and the pages are also packed with insects, animals, birds, fish, Celtic motifs, decorative initials and more. Images can be transferred on to painted backgrounds and the design build up with flat, looped, chained or knotted stitches, or you may prefer a pattern that is perfect for blackwork, canvas work or stumpwork.

Embroiderers will discover designs that can be used decoratively in samplers, panels, and wallhangings. Functional ideas could also be developed, with borders and motifs stitched on to boxes, bags, purses, soft furnishing and clothing. The many different styles will inspire stitchers to try something new, or to develop their own themes whether they are embellishing existing items or starting a fresh project.
