Doodle Stitching: Embroidery & Beyond is really an ideal book for me, since I like to both doodle and stitch! I also like how all of the designs are so fresh and modern, which gives it a definite upgrade on the 70’s needlework that I grew up with. Now that my daughter is enjoying hand sewing also, I’m glad to have a current book to show her how to do so.
The hand sewn projects in Doodle Stitching: Embroidery & Beyond make it easy to take whatever I’m working on with me and stitch while I’m waiting or even watching TV. One of my favorite things to stitch on is pillow cases, and while the projects offered are used on many types of items like quilts, bags, etc., I can also use pretty much any of them on a pillow case! My favorite motifs were the adorable woodland animals and the gorgeous handdrawn monogram alphabet. Just with those items from Doodle Stitching: Embroidery & Beyond, I could have all kinds of fun!
