Plastic Canvas, Cross Stitch, Embroidery, PatchworkBook - 2004
In the hands of craftswoman Meg Evans, a simple box becomes a delightful embroidered treasure or a special gift. Here she provides detailed guidance on creating an exquisite range of shapes and sizes, perfect for all uses, from a large and elegant design with a folded patchwork lid, ideal for filling with luxury chocolates for a friend, to a tiny drop-sided sewing box. The basic box-making techniques are clearly described, and together with the decorative needlework techniques, provide the inspiration for readers to design and make their own boxes. In four straightforward sections, Meg covers circular, rectangular and square, drop-sided and easy-to-make boxes. The projects are graded to indicate their level of difficulty and consist of clear step-by-step instructions, diagrams, charts and beautiful photography that reveals all the brilliant colors and detailed workmanship.
