Embroidered Flowers by Helen Stevens
Share the secrets of talented artist Helen M. Stevens as she reveals how you can recreate the splendour of nature in your embroideries. Embroidered Flowers the first title in the Masterclass Embroidery Series provides a fascinating insight to the beauty of flowers in all their different habitats with step-by-step advice on how to create your own embroidered floral studies. In five fascinating chapters Helen explores a variety of flowers united by a shared habitat from the now rare treasures of the wildflower meadow - poppies mallows and cornflowers to the rambling roses, tall foxgloves and evening primroses of the traditional cottage garden. Each chapter culminates in a masterclass project: a colour template is provided for five original designs ranging in difficulty from simple poppy heads to the more elegant lines of the flat iris. Easy to follow step-by-step colour photographs illustrate the working in progress of the designs to ensure that perfect results are achievable. Finally a basic technique section gives valuable advice on choosing threads and fabrics, the transfer of templates, guidance on silk shading and the working of all Helen's most popular stitches, to guarantee that this becomes the essential guide to creating embroidered floral portraits.
