Stitched Style Book And Giveaway

You know that I just love embroidery. It’s the perfect relaxing craft for when you want to craft while doing other things. Watching movies, road trips, fixing dinner. . .kidding on that last one. Sort of.

One of my favorite things is coming up with new fun patterns, but also finding new books and other designs – I love new inspiration!
I have a fun new book to tell you about from Indigo Junction – Stitched Style.

Here’s a little about the book from Indygo Junction:

Embellish your world with embroidery designs from Indygo Junction’s Stitched Style. You’ll find 20 fashion oriented projects, featuring 65 unique hand embroidery designs, with over 100 styles and sizes to trace or transfer. The projects feature Crossroads Denim by Amy Barickman, as well as repurposed denim. Bring new life to ready made jeans, jackets purses and totes with a needle and thread. Or create your own one of a kind item from scratch! Never embroidered before? No worries, our materials guide, detailed trace and transfer instructions and stitch dictionary will tell you all you need to know to add some Stitched Style to your life.

The designs featured in Stitched Style were inspired by Amy Barickman’s SoHo Bandana fabric collection with Red Rooster. A longtime collector of vintage bandanas, Amy took those classic designs and updated them for today. Using contemporary colors and stylized designs, bandana has never looked so fresh and fun.

So let’s take a look at some of the projects in the book!
I really love the bracelet ideas.  The various stitches look so sweet on the denim – but they’d be great on any fabric.

Crazy cuff

I love this little card case too! I have been needing to make up one of these for all my store cards. I love the floral design on this one!

Rojo Crossroads Case

This belt is really fun too! It has kind of an Anthro feel to it. I can totally see it paired with a pretty eyelet dress and some boots! Love.

Venice Beach Belt

One of the other great things about the book is that if you aren’t into hand embroidery, they have the whole Stitched Style embroidery designs in a machine collection through OESD. So it’s a win win for embroidery fans!

    I haven’t done much embroidery the last several years. I would love to make some fabric buckets for my craft room and embroidery those.

    I haven’t done much actual embroidery, but when I think about it (which is often), I usually think about embroidering on bags, and around the neck and sleeve openings of shirts and tunics. :)

    I love embroidering little things for my soon to be 7 year old daughter. My next project is to personalize and decorate a lab coat for her mad scientist birthday party”
