A new book by master teacher and silk ribbon embroidery expert Di van Niekerk with assistance from Toody Cassidy.
This book is from The Search Press Textile Artist Series.
Silk ribbon embroidery on felted fablers is new to me but the examples shown in this book are wonderful.
The Art of Felting & Silk Ribbon Embroidery begins with an introduction by Di, ib it she quotes Gail Sheedy "Creativity can be described as letting go of certainties". I agree.
There are complete instructions on felting. What you need, how to begin and proceed and a few projects for you to do.
Then the book moves to Silk Ribbon Embroidery. Again, how to begin, hints and possible patterns for felted fabric.
The instructions are complete, detailed and as always, leave nothing you need out.
There is a Stitch Gallery and 14 projects. Also a section of patterns.
This is a substantial paperbound book with heavy glossy cover. Published by Search Press in 2017 it has 160 pages.
