Books Info:

The Handstitched Home free pdf The Hand-Stitched Home: Projects and Inspiration for Creating Embroidered Textiles for the Home is an inspirational book by the embroiderer and textile designer Caroline Zoob. Full of beautifully photographed projects and ideas, from a simple flower on the edge of a chair cover to more intricate window treatments, this book will prove invaluable for anyone wanting to add elegant embroidered touches to modern, airy decorating schemes. In the introduction to The Hand-Stitched Home, Caroline considers crucial points essential for successful hand-stitching such as the choice and use of colour and fabric. She looks at sources of inspiration and explains the importance of spotting things that lend themselves to be captured in stitches such as the dots on the petals of a hellebore, the bare branches of trees or rolled bales of hay in a field. She advises how to seek inspiration from threads, buttons, picture frames, scraps of lace or old greetings cards. The book is then divided into five main chapters that include a wide variety of projects, such as making pictures and window dressing. The book concludes with a practical section that covers stitches and techniques, templates and suppliers. Whether you are an experienced sewer or taking up your needle for the first time, The Hand-Stitched Home will inspire you to create beautifully decorative pieces for your home.
