For lovers of folk art wool appliqué, Deborah Gale Tirico is back with her latest book, Celebrate Wool Appliqué. The book contains thirty new designs to be appliquéd in felted wool and embellished with engaging embroidery accents.
Deborah, who also authored Gorgeous Wool Appliqué and A New Dimension in Wool Appliqué, shares some of her most creative decorative accessories, grouped in themes that are perfect for gift-giving or adding new charm to your own home. There are sewing suite projects, as well as charming projects meant to celebrate a wedding, Christmas, and even wine country.
The Tesoros suite of projects would delight any sewist. It includes a needlebook, pincushion, scissors sheath, and fob, all with a covered box for storage.
“Appliqué is fun—this is my mantra,” says Deborah. “For those who absolutely love to hold a needle and thread and have a romance with wool appliqué, this book is for you. If you love to choose thread colors, buy fabrics because they speak to you, and get more excitement giving a handmade wool item than making it, I assembled these projects for you.”
The Love Birds wedding banner is perfect for a beginner and the happy couple will display it with pride.
Whatever she stitches, Deborah takes special care to create her best work. She gives you the tools as well, by showing you how to make an embroidery guide, how to use a full-size placement guide, and how to add dimension through trapunto, layering, and needle slanting.
Give a wine lover a beautiful covered storage box, plus serving mat, coasters, wine glass charms, and bottle snug.
