Inspirations Issue 114 - Nature Walk

Exquisite projects using delicate textures and vibrant colours.



Including the work of two new contributors, projects in Inspirations issue 114 utilise a variety of raised embroidery and playful surface embroidery techniques to create beloved birds and animals in stitch, from realistic portrayals to sketch-like artworks and delightful, picture-book characters.

You will also discover beautiful Dresden whitework, used to work an exquisite heart design, and pulled and counted thread techniques used to create needlework accessories.
