Even though I have a basic knowledge of hand embroidery I just love this book. The information is well delivered and there are alot of different stitches well explained with detailed photo's and drawings. The projects included are well thought out and extremely well presented with plenty of room to do your own thing and adapt if you wish. This book gives you a start and so much lovely inspiration.

Review quote

"Doodle Stitching is a truly cute book...full of practical and whimsical projects that are neither boring or stodgy.... The projects section of Doodle Stitching shows how to make so many ordinary items special, such as pillow cases, skirts, shoes, shirts, scarves, boxer shorts and napkins. For those that like to take their creativity and sewing skills that little bit further, there are small projects to make and embroider, ... This is a good book for beginner embroiderers that would like a fun place to start, for more experienced embroiderers that might have become a bit jaded with more traditional patterns and could do with some light inspiration, and for anyone that likes to look at well-designed craft books full of cute projects."--"Whipup.net "
