I’ve been thinking a lot about handwork ever since I spotted these gorgeous sheets over at Toast. The sheets are pretty outstanding and I think it would probably take me years to create something that beautiful.
I came across Scandinavian Needlecraft by Clare Youngs (CICO Books) a book containing 35 step-by-step sewing projects. How freakin cute are those pillow, stockings, slippers? The book contains 33 more that will have you ordering embroidery supplies as soon you finish flipping through the book. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to embroider all the knots are outlined in the back of the book with detailed illustrations. Seriously how great would any of these projects be as holiday gifts?
Maybe once I make a few of the projects I can embroider a pair of sheets or maybe just pillows? The heart pillows are sooo cute. Purchase the book now through amazon.com for $19.95.
Disclaimer: CICO Books did send me this book for free. But I honestly do love the book and I honestly couldn’t wait to share it with my readers.
