Review by Booklist Review

Ever wanted to embellish something with a specific flower but could only find generic floral designs? This book includes patterns for 200 flowers, foliage, fruits, and vegetables, organized by season and setting. Step-by-step tutorials for seven basic stitches are provided with color photographs. All designs included in the book can be completed using one or more of these seven stitches, though most use a combination of three or four. Author Gula, maker of bespoke and original embroidered art, encourages readers to practice until they are satisfied with the quality of their stitches and to change stitch types and colors to suit their own tastes. Each design includes a transferable pattern outline with stitch and color keys (using DMC embroidery floss color numbers), a color photo of the finished embroidery, and a paragraph describing basic details about the plant and its characteristics. In addition, instructions are provided for using these patterns to embellish 10 existing items, such as a tea towel, tote bag, and shirt collar. Includes an index to the designs by plants' common names.--Anne Heidemann Copyright 2018 Booklist
