If you are looking for
something to brighten up your home why not have a go at making a
chirpy little bird. Most of the materials you need to make your bird
can be found in your sewing stash and what's more, as the project
only requires basic sewing and machine embroidery skills, it's
perfect for beginners. So go on, find some fabric and threads and
you'll soon be flying away with ideas!

If you would like to add
an embroidered decoration with a bit of a twist, why not try
stitching 'off the edge'. By using water soluble fabric it is
possible to create an embroidered motif that extends beyond the raw
edge of a piece cloth. You can then repeat the motif as many times as
you want to give items such as scarves, table runners, blinds,
pillowcases and garments, a truly unique look. Have fun!
