Summary

Learn to create a variety of birds following the newest embroidery trend: thread painting.

Through a collection of 12 detailed, full-color patterns, aspiring and established embroidery artists will discover how to employ the art of thread painting to create a range of popular birds and waterfowl from around the world, including North America, the Amazon rain forest, and Europe.

Thread painting is the name for using single strands of embroidery floss to create lifelike images with beautifully blended gradients of color and detail. Fortunately, the process is not as hard as it sounds! After learning a bit about how to create gradients and blend colors, anyone can create incredible embroidered masterpieces.
 Embroidery Made Easy: Beautiful Birds includes:
  • A primer on embroidery materials, setup, and thread painting techniques
  • Patterns that indicate where each color should go and when the gradients should begin
  • For each project, step-by-step instructions and reference images of the finished piece
Perfect for needlepoint artists of all skill levels, there is no better time to learn how to create beautiful birds in embroidery.

Author Biography

Beth Hoyes is an embroidery artist and art therapist. Originally from the United Kingdom and now based in Denver, Colorado, Beth runs a small embroidery business @rabbithatdesigns. Beth started embroidering while going through the shift of moving countries a few years ago and fell in love with the process. Beth seeks to share her love of nature and the power of making, connecting people to creatures and botanicals through exploring all the beauty in the teeniest and largest of details, as well as sharing the joy and soothing of learning to stitch through her DIY embroidery patterns and kits. When she's not embroidering, Beth can be found out and about in the Rocky Mountains with her husband in their camper van, drinking tea, reading, outdoor swimming, and watching films and documentaries.
