We translated the cutest Japanese patterns we could find to bring you the appeal of authentic Japanese content with the ease of English instruction. The result is such a treat. With Woolly Embroidery, learn how to add stunning designs to clothes and home accessories using simple crewel, stump work, canvas work, and other embroidery techniques. And it's so easy to pick up. If you can sew a button, you can embroider—it doesn't involve any complicated patterns or grids, just forgivingly freeform stitching. All you need is a needle and some wool thread. Helpful illustrations explain more than 30 decorative stitches so you can follow the instructions and color guides exactly or improvise your own motifs. With dozens of photographs to inspire, you'll want to embellish everything in your world-handbags, couch cushions, a sewing kit case, and so much more.
