Figure Work in Embroidery: Techniques and Projects
This book covers more embroidered body types than just the adorable ones on the front cover. From cutesy to gothic to modern styles, Angela has lots of advice for creating your own physical forms.
Special attention is also given to creating hair, face, hands and feet. The author gives techniques on using embellishments like beads and buttons as well as special stitches and padding to give dimensional effects.
