£14.99

Over 25 original embroidery designs with iron-on transfers by Tilly Rose (Author)


Book Description

A collection of vintage-inspired floral transfer designs to embroider, love and cherish. A beautiful package demonstrating inspirational stitched embroideries from popular textile artist Tilly Rose, together with over 25 reusable transfer designs for you to use in any combination to stitch your own unique pieces.

Wildflowers provide endless inspiration, and this first book in Tilly Rose's new A Love of Cloth & Thread series draws on the beautiful outdoors, with a gorgeous collection of nature-inspired embroidery transfers showcasing Tilly’s most-loved seasonal wildflowers.

Tilly unveils the historic background to each of her designs, before putting her own modern spin on her truly unique stitched designs, each of which are sumptuously photographed in detail. Take inspiration from her stitched designs and use the variety of transfers in the book to create your own floral arrangements to stitch using your own choice of fabrics and threads.

The transfer designs are printed on iron-on paper, which can be cut out, stored in the pocket at the back of the book, and used multiple times each, allowing you to create an array of beautiful designs over and over.

A detachable illustrated stitch guide, covering the 14 stitches used in the main designs, is included in the book, which makes the perfect handy reference to pop in your sewing bag when stitching on the go.

Tilly Rose's third book will no doubt inspire stitchers once again to use your own findings, experiences and special fabrics to stitch pieces that are memorable and meaningful to you.

Includes 2 bonus transfer sheets.
