Cutomising Clothes with Embroidery

15 Fun Projects to Inspire You to Upcycle the Clothes You Already Own

Connie Mabbott


Don't throw away something just because it's no longer new! Start embroidering your own clothes with inspiration with the author's detailed embroidery projects that will have you captivated by the technique of free-motion embroidery. These projects will get you inspired to either patch up that old top with a hole or stain, or create something outstanding on that staple denim jacket you've been wanting to customise for ages.

The book covers all skill levels – from easy patches using straight lines, to big pieces with lots of colour and shading for maximum impact and detail! There's something for everyone to start with before challenging yourself and progressing onto more advanced designs. Each project contains beautiful imagery of the design process from start to finish, showing how an embroidered garment is created from the initial thought processes and drawing stages, right through to the stitching techniques and the finished pieces.
