Themed chapters offer projects to suit various home decorating styles – from contemporary to bold Scandi-inspired, floral to modern country, coastal to vintage – ending with a festive chapter for seasonal decorating.
There are more than 35 different items to make: cushion covers, placemats, a quilted throw, apron, tablet and e-reader covers, a gardening tool roll, cosmetic bag, Christmas stocking and star garland, a beach bag, embroidered wall art... and a fair bit more.
Embroidered Home is packed with projects and designs, making it really good value for money. And although the items are centred on the home, they make great gifts and items with which to spoil yourself, too.
The sewing instructions are given in full and there are extra embroidery designs at the end of each chapter so you can modify the projects to suit your taste.
Of course, many thanks must go to editor Tara O'Sullivan, photographer Vanessa Davies (who also owns Hoop Haberdashery in Kent, UK), stylist Polly Webb-Wilson and layout designer Heidi Baker for all their hard hands-on work, as well as the rest of the team from Kyle Books involved in putting Embroidered Home together. It’s no mean feat to create a book and couldn’t have been done without the help of many.
