Summary "Artfully Embroidered reinvents vintage embroidery through a modern aesthetic. Traditional Japanese and western motifs are made new with color and embellishment, and 25 hand embroidered patterns demonstrate the beauty of the traditional designs while keeping the projects fresh and modern-looking for today's sewists. Step-by-step instructions and templates allow readers to create lovely sewn or embroidered projects or use the embroidery motifs on their own designs. Projects include a variety of handbags, totes, coin purses, compacts, as well as book and tablet covers. In addition, there are visual examples of embroidery used as embellishment on clothing and linens. Also included are pattern inserts for selected projects" -- from publisher's web site.
