Stitch Beatrix Potter
Stitching with Beatrix Potter is a delightful new book by renowned quilter Michele Hill.
Beautifully photographed with clear, easy instructions, it comes with numerous templates which are perforated for easy removal, so you can stitch your own gorgeous Beatrix Potter characters.
The book includes a short history of Beatrix Potter, together with pictures of some of the property she acquired during her writing years in the Lake District which, upon her death, she left to the National Trust in the UK.
Michele has created projects which are achievable for all levels of stitcher. Projects include bunting for the nursery, a frieze wall hanging, wool felt storage box, hexagons featuring six of your favourite Beatrix Potter characters, and a Mrs Tiggy-Winkle iron cover. Included with each project are tips, methods, notes, lists of equipment you will need, as well as a page of general instructions. Projects include appliqué and embroidery.
As Michele says, “I hope through the art of stitching I can bring some of Beatrix Potter’s delightful stories to life, and that these projects bring pleasure to others.”
Stitching with Beatrix Potter will make the perfect gift for anyone who is passionate about handwork and her much loved timeless stories.
