Everyone’s favorite embroiderer Brian Haggard is back with Embroidered Memories —a rich compendium bursting with hundreds of embroidery designs for quilting, wearables, gifts, and more. The book includes lots of full-size patterns that you can re-size as you need to for any project you can dream up!
You can mix and match 375 unique elements and two alphabets to create any design you’d like, whether it reflects your memories, your hopes, or your present. It will also teach you to master 13 basic stitches that you can creatively combine for embellishing and storytelling.
From elegant lettering, flowers and vines to vintage and whimsical images, this book is guaranteed to inspire. Your designs can be traced or printed on transfer paper, whichever method you prefer. Pay tribute to your heritage, celebrate your family, or show off your own personal flair with loving needlework and embellishments.
As Brian writes in the introduction,” The images in this book are here to inspire you— to start a creative flow in your mind. Don’t allow them to stifle you by trying to follow them exactly. They are fluid. Release your imagination and let the images become what you want them to be.”
