When you want to make a fresh artistic statement, put down the pencil and turn on the sewing machine instead! Figurative stitch work is a hot new look, and Rosie James--a leading exponent of the style--takes newcomers by the hand and guides them through its ins and outs. Using her own gorgeous drawings, plus those of other top artists, she lays out a repertoire of techniques, including transferring drawing to cloth, stitching on photographs, using multicolored threads, layering images, and creating a pleasing composition.

If you like the drawing style of the black outlined figures of the cover, you'll like the book. The whole thing is basically how to machine embroider figures like that. It goes over how to use reference photos or sketches, set up your machine and use the materials. I was hoping for a little more variety in the projects suggested, but it's mostly for display or maybe applique onto a shirt. Just not really my style, but to each their own!
