I am always on the look out for different ways to teach children embroidery. This book is an inspiration on how to use stitching and words.
Non of the designs are difficult and you could sew everyone by hand and forget about the sewing machine altogether.
These little pincushions use stitching and a white gel pen to gain that washed out look. I think that you could also get the same result painting the inside of that lettering with bleach. I will have to give that a trial.
I also see there is a notice to teachers that the publisher encourages teachers to use the book for teaching purposes, (within it's guidelines.) I have bought an E Book Version. The hardback hasn't hit the stores as yet.
