About this deal

Overall, I'm quite happy with my stitching of this project - I love that the design is simple, but you can adapt it with any stitches you'd like to try out, as well as experimentation with color. Ce sont des broderies longues à faire, et qui, au final vont manquer de couleurs dans les formes pleines ; j'ai donc l'idée d'en colorier avec des feutres textiles, mais surtout de les dessiner moi-même avant de les broder, comme sur la 3° photo, un modèle qu'on ne trouve pas dans le livre.

I was unable to find anyone to credit this stunning photo to – if you’re the photographer, let me know! I must admit to being a little nervous about starting stitching; although I’ve been cross-stitching for decades, and of course enjoy my punchneedle embroidery, I haven’t actually done any regular embroidery since I learnt the basic stitches in primary school.We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. com, the Sell on Etsy app, and the Etsy app, as well as the electricity that powers Etsy’s global offices and employees working remotely from home in the US.

If you’ve never tried embroidery, I’d definitely encourage you to give it a try – I found it very relaxing and satisfying to watch the design come together. This means that all the designs can be simply ironed onto your fabric, saving you the hassle of transferring the design by hand.But I’m not being compensated for this review in any other way, and the following is based on my honest opinions! With Carina's gentle guidance beginners can also learn how to display their creations in embroidery hoops, including the much-loved Dandelyne hoops which the 12 mini mandalas can fit inside perfectly. I really love this book, and (gushing friendship moment) I'm really proud of Carina for designing it, she is so talented and her use of colour is always such a joy. If readers are less confident about jumping straight into embroidery – or are pressed for time – 24 corresponding black and white motifs can be found on transfer sheets at the back of the book, which you can iron onto your chosen fabric multiple times.

It even has some great patterns in the back that really helped me break that barrier from useless to “Hey, I actually can do this! There is also advice and photos inside on how to use your stunning mandalas to embellish myriad accessories and items, from shoes to tote bags. Ever since Carina mentioned that she was designing a book of mandalas, I’ve been waiting to see what she came up with, and I wasn’t disappointed! Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. A delightful book that makes me eager to start stitching, and one which will appeal to many levels of embroidery expertise.To enable personalised advertising (like interest-based ads), we may share your data with our marketing and advertising partners using cookies and other technologies.
