The Embellish Your Life with Sulky book has 136 full-color pages, featuring over 25 must-have techniques in a journal format ideal for teachers to teach and others to learn. It is technique oriented, not project oriented, and includes a fabulous designer gallery showing gorgeous, finished examples of how each technique can be used. The wire-O binding keeps it laying flat on a worktable as a ready reference.
The techniques can be mastered by simple means without a large investment in time and money. Some techniques have been revived and are made refreshingly new again by using modern tools and stabilizers. Most could be used on garments, quilts, or for home decorating and “sew” much more. Readers can create their own fabric journal or pick and choose the techniques that interest them and simply stitch those. Each technique shows a finished Journal Page, steps to accomplish it, supplies needed, and a stunning gallery piece for further inspiration. Some of the gallery pieces have bonus instructions and patterns included on the CD in the back of the book. The embellishment techniques are divided into six categories: Free-Motion Play; Specialty Stitches; Surface Design; Thread Lace; Appliqué Techniques; and Printing Labels –
