Escort Paris Hazel, Crewel Intentions : L'Atelier de Penelope

Hazel, Crewel Intentions

Hazel Blomkamp Using only cotton, rayon, and metallic threads, along with beads and crystals, the designs in this book are embroidered onto cotton, linen, taffeta, and silk. The techniques, while making full use of crewel embroidery stitches, borrow extensively from other styles and other needlecrafts. Needle lace, Brazilian, bead embroidery, stumpwork, and last of all loom weaving methods have been incorporated into the embroidery that fill the Jacobean shapes in all of the designs. Every project is clearly explained with step-by-step instructions and lots of photographs, and the completed embroideries are displayed in ways that are both decorative and functional. Templates of the original designs complete this magnificent resource, Soft cover, 160 pages
