not your grandma's embroidery!10/11/11| Zelda LemI love this book! That patterns in it are so cute and so original! Even my boyfriend and guy friends love the patterns and have already asked me to stitch martini glasses dancing girls onto their pockets ;) Best of all are the how-to for a bunch of different stitches, as well as suggestions and resources for learning more. It's impossible not to feel inspired!
learn to embroider in one afternoon10/11/11| Mia BlankensopI got the embroidery Stitch-It Kit and the Sublime Stitching on a sudden craft whim. I spent the next several days flipping through the patterns and uttering little coos of happiness. Once my roommate and I looked at every charming pattern three or four times each (from rocket ships to the Eiffel Tower), I finally got to work. Now, I’ve never done embroidery before in my life and it didn’t matter. Jenny Hart’s instructions make it painless. She’s kind of like a sassy, older sister who teaches you all the stitching tricks in one day. I even roped a guy friend into learning how to embroider and he found it “soothing”. Finally, did you know that one skein of embroidery floss costs less than a dollar? That's right. Cheapest. Hobby. Ever.
