From Print to Stitch PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

From Print to Stitch free pdf This highly practical and unique book provides clear, step-by-step instructions for adding amazing designs to fabric by printing and stitching. Using a whole range of printing techniques, including block printing, soft-cut lino printing, mono printing and collagraph printing, the author guides you carefully through the process, from initial idea, through the development of a theme, to designing and making a block and creating pattern on paper. Once you are happy with your design, it is transferred to fabric and finally stitching is added to enhance the design. Both machine and hand stitching are used, and there's a useful and extensive stitch library at the back of the book showing the range of stitches you can use. Janet's unique eye for colour is evident throughout the book, which is richly illustrated with numerous partly completed samples to illustrate the author's methods, finished examples of her work, and three-dimensional objects created using printed and stitched fabrics to extend the reader's imagination even further.
