Addition to My Art Library

"The world is three-dimensional—why not embroidery? Creating three-dimensional embroidery for use on clothing & as unique accessories, or simply as stunning artwork, has become one of the hottest trends in the textile arts. The complete design & construction process is detailed here—from the initial drawing board sketch to the finished bags, boxes, or other artwork—with all the various stitches & steps illustrated in 90 color photographs. The instructions cover everything from the basics of creating raised geometric shapes to advanced freeform work & tucking, folding & coiling fabric to adding beads & other personalized touches, as well as multiple joinery techniques & a range of clever finishing methods."
