      Description
      17 beautiful blackwork patterns with a colourful twist to embroider for the home.

      The 17 patterns designed by Bernadette Baldelli modernize the technique by adding a touch of red to the traditional black and white, and by including both geometrical and more figurative styles. You’ll discover a lush, graphic world with embroidery that is simple to do and gives stunning results. You can make a basket, a pouch, wall hangings, placemats, an embroidered shirt, throw blanket and more. Simple diagrams make them easy to do, and there is a wealth of tempting patterns to choose from. Bernadette’s creations are known for their excellent finishing touches and these are no exception.

      There are seven beautiful projects to inspire and instruct textile artists everywhere, including a lampshade, bauble pods, a memory lampshade, decorative panels and a tablet cover.

In this beautiful book she shows the reader how to create stunning crewelwork embroideries inspired by traditional fairytales, including The Wizard of Oz, Karolcia, the Wild Swans and Cinderella.

Each part of the embroidery is then explored in detail through stitch diagrams, explanations of the threads used, and alternative ways of working. There are seven wonderful designs in total, each dedicated to one of Tatiana’s favourite fairytales, and all illustrated with gorgeous photographs and informative diagrams.

      In total, over 90 stitches are described in the book, all worked using stranded cotton and cotton pearl thread rather than traditional crewel wool, which gives the embroideries a fresh, modern appeal.

      Bio
      Tatiana Popova is a Ukrainian embroiderer who specialises in silk ribbon work, creating pieces that emanate elegance with their classic designs, luscious colour and artfully realistic flowers.

      She learnt to stitch at an early age, inspired by her mother and grandmother’s embroidery, and for a time pursued her passion for stitching by studying a huge variety of embroidery styles and techniques, both at school and in her own time. Despite her love for embroidery, Tatiana studied to become a florist designer initially. However, soon after graduating from university, she discovered the world of silk ribbon embroidery. It triggered the beginnings of her own own business, Little Owl Smart Crafts Company, producing kits for silk ribbon and crewel embroidery - thus allowing her to create flower bouquets that never fade. Today, Tatiana participates in a number of craft shows all around the world, including the UK, US and Japan, and annually teaches at the Bead&Button Show.
