Simple hand-worked embroidery, naturally colored fabrics, and several cross-craft techniques combine to create 12 striking projects with 20 elegant and contemporary designs. The embroidery projects, each presented with step-by-step instructions and color illustrations, include an embellished linen heart, a drawn-threadwork throw, an embroidered tote bag, a pair of lace-edged slippers, a beaded evening bag, a beaded choker, a glamorous quilted gauze pillow, and a beaded patchwork picture frame. Information on basic embroidery techniques, choosing fabrics and equipment, and resizing and transferring designs is also provided.
