And So to Embroider 8b - cover

Leaflet 8b in the Needlework Development Scheme’s series “And So To Embroider” includes:

  • Designing with fabric. How to manipulate patterned fabrics to create different patterns by pleating, changing the direction of the pattern, playing with scale, combining patterns and embroidery.
  • Making a gingham apron and cushion from simple rectangles with  simple pleated fabrics. (Finished projects can be made from the description without a full pattern).
  • Full pattern for a girl’s sun bonnet.

Modern Tutorials
