1. Love animals
2. Have been thread-painting curious
This book was made for you!
If you explore the book chronologically, you can take each section of projects as a way to work up to higher-level thread painting. You'll build your skills as you go! Beyond having adorable pieces to hang, Jessica also shows how to adapt these designs to patches so you can adorn your jackets, bags, and what not with these sweet animal buddies.
Jessica's book is great in that it holds the stitcher's hand a bit, talking you through set up, stitching order, and finishing techniques.
The back of the book has the patterns ready to trace (or scan and print onto transfer paper) so it's easy to get going.
