Our latest release for StashBooks is from Kristyne Czepuryk of Pretty by Hand blog fame.
Do you have a baby shower coming up? A baby of your own? Or – a little one that is learning their letters?
The alphabet has long been a staple of a child’s room, and for good reason: it is educational and it can be magically transformed into a work of art.
Kristyne’s book has TWO complete A is for… type of embroidered alphabets, a girl version AND a boy version! (personal favorite: F is for Fort)
With 2 full quilt designs and projects ranging from soft blocks to wall art for the nursery – this book not only provides the embroidery designs but gives you both directions and inspiration on how to use them.
Her years of experience shine through in the opening pages of the book. A Golden Nugget of information can be found on page 14. Seriously, it has changed my life and promised me much less frustration with skeins of floss.
How do you trace your embroidery designs? I think that is likely the no. 1 question embroiderers are asked… and we have heard a lot of answers over the years. But not Kristyne’s – I’ve never seen it anywhere before!
Embroidery is the ultimate in portable stitching — and with FULL size patterns of every letter and design offered — you will be stitching in no time.
