ISBN 9781782211969 Felt Brooches with Free-Machine Stitching


Full Description

20 felt sewing projects that are quick, easy, stylish, modern and appealing. This book provides a range of fun and attractive felt brooch designs that will appeal to seasoned sewing machine users as well as beginners. The designs include popular motifs such as an owl, a chicken, dogs, cats, cupcakes, fairies and flowers, as well as more quirky subjects such as a beach hut and a seed head. Some designs include organza, beads and other materials as embellishment. A techniques section is included which explains step-by-step all the stitches used, and a template is provided for each design. The author has made the 20 designs in bought felt which are featured in the styled shots. She has then re-made each project using her own handmade felt to showcase the different effects that can be acheived with texture and depth of colour. Each of these alternatives has been photographed in detail. Contents: 1 X 48 Page Paperback Author: Myra Hutton Author Bio - Myra trained in Textile Art and Dress & Textile Design with Education at Ilkley College (University of Bradford, W. Yorks) and spent several years teaching and developing her textile skills, often combining the two. She left teaching in 2003 to explore and develop her work as a textile artist, fusing natural fibres, hand dyed fabrics, and embellished hand-made felt to create rich landscapes, sunsets or seascapes. Most recently, she has combined her felt and illustrative style to produce smaller pieces and 'wearable art'. Myra has exhibited at numerous shows, including Landmark Arts Contemporary Textile Fair, Craft @ Top Drawer and as an invited demonstrator for three years in the Specialists Craft & Design Marquee at Living Crafts Hatfield House and at their last show at Blenheim Palace. She will be showing at Ideal Homes Glasgow this May having been ‘spotted’ at Hatfield House. Myra has exhibited in several galleries and her work has ended up in private collections throughout the UK and the rest of Europe, America & New Zealand. She gives talks and demonstrations, runs workshops for children and adults, and is a visiting artist to local schools working on bespoke creative textile projects. Myra has a strong online presence, with her own website, Facebook and Twitter accounts. Myra lives in Milton Keynes.
