This is a 52 page, A4 sized book from Leisure Arts that contains 10 great projects, all decorated with Redwork. Redwork is a style of embroidery that involves stitching the outline of designs with a coloured thread, onto a white or off-white background. Red was the traditional colour used – hence the name – but these days you can choose any colour you like!
The projects in the book are a Shoulder Bag, a Drawer Sachet, a Hanging Sachet, a Pincushion, 2 Pillows, 3 quilted Wall Hangings, and a Notions Keeper to hold your scissors etc. Full instructions are given for each one plus there are 5 pages on how to do the embroidery and 8 pages on general instructions. 18 different embroidery stitches are used throughout the book and good diagrams are given of each stitch.
