Thirty creative textile projects that are suitable to be hung and framed. The book aims to inspire readers to look at the use of textiles as a medium for creating innovative graphic artwork. The projects combine applique with patching, surface embellishment (with buttons, beads, trimmings and wire), knitting and machine- and hand-embroidery techniques. The projects range from the very easy to those that will prove a bit more of a challenge. The book is filled with photos showing how different effects can be achieved. There are also suggestions on how to modify the projects in order to personalise them. Also included are discussions of materials, equipment and techniques which the maker will find useful. All in all, this is a book filled with imaginative projects which will work both as a source of inspiration and information.
