Projects are overall fun, and the entire last half is dedicated to instructions and stitching tutorials, so it's a good book for beginners. Projects are colourful, fun, inspiring, but nothing really wowy or out of the ordinary. I liked that they included each designer's short bio about what they do, it was fun to read and then to look them up on their websites or Etsy shops.

I have a bone to pick with craft books and this is no exception. I suppose if you're only ever going to purchase ONE book on embroidery, then this is as good as any other, but every craft book includes pages and pages of basic teaching techniques on the topic it covers.

There are things to like. I really appreciate that each project has a complete materials list including needle sizes, the stitches used and the featured techniques. There are a surprising number of stitchery types used--such as crewel, ribbonwork, and bargello--despite the whimsical

Really cute book! I loved so many of the designs. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because only half of the book featured patterns. The other half explained embroidery techniques. I just wish there were more patterns and less explanation, but overall it is a nice embroidery book.

Lovely little book. Lots of techniques explained in an easy-to-follow in a well laid-out, pretty book. Some patterns included. Some designs rather dated/old-school if that's your thing.
