The Kew Book of Embroidered Flowers : 11 Inspiring Projects with Reusable Iron-On Transfers
by Trish Burr




Overview -
Written by needlework expert Trish Burr and created in association with The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, this package contains the sumptuous book and transfers of projects from the book together in a beautiful hardcover binder.

Focusing mainly on long-and-short stitch and Trish's delicate, considered use of silk shading, the book contains all the stitches needed, clearly illustrated, and gives thorough advice on preparation and choosing fabrics and threads - including a handy thread conversion chart.

The embroideries are reworkings of botanical artworks from Kew's Art Collection. There is one 'starter' project to encourage readers to try out the techniques, one large sampler containing eighteen small elements that can be worked individually or as a group, and nine further projects, including a striking spider chrysanthemum, an elegant waterlily and an opulent magnolia. All the projects are shown step by step, with an order of work diagram given where appropriate. The templates are included at full size at the back of the book.
