Explore nature through a combination of textiles and embroidery in this new, modernized edition of Gilda Baron’s inspirational, innovative step-by-step work.

Using painted and dyed backgrounds, and hand and machine embroidery, this guide presents a wonderful variety of three-dimensional landscape and flower embroideries. A number of techniques are employed when applying color to the fabric including batik, salt discharge and brushing dye into a wet surface. Beautiful pictures are then stitched and built up over the background in easy stages. The feeling of perspective is enhanced by the clever use of scale and color, and all the techniques are explained clearly and demonstrated in a series of stunning projects. This original book is packed with practical advice and information, and anyone interested in pattern, texture and color will discover a wealth of inspiration when they work through the projects. These highly individual designs will encourage beginners and more experienced embroiderers to create their own embroidered flower designs.
