Bead Embroidery Stitch Samples—Motifs
More and more sewists and quilters are adding embroidered details to their work. While there are a bevy of embroidery-stitch dictionaries currently available, this book goes beyond basic stitches to full-fashioned designs. With a collection of 123 embroidered motifs that incorporate beads, this book enables readers to create designs that range from beautiful to whimsical.
Motifs vary from elegantly simple single motifs to complex allover patterns to three-dimensional designs. Patterns emphasize beaded edgings and trims, with step-by-step instructions and numerous examples of how to use and place the motifs on garments, accessories, and home-decor items. Using nothing more than embroidery threads and simple beads, Bead Embroidery Stitch Samples: Motifs offers new ways for beginner and advanced embroidery enthusiasts alike to set their work apart.
