“English Storybook Tales 2”

“English Garden”

This tiny book tells a story of the view of an English Garden! It’s just like a fairy tale all stitched by hand in an enchanting little book! Many hand embroidery & stump work stitches will create the garden, and countryside. We’ll be using several different types of hand dyed fabrics for backgrounds and hillsides. In the class we will create one of the signature pages from Beatrix Potter’s Cottage Garden! There will be instructions given to complete the fabric book.
