Embroidery, Quilting, Sewing & Embellishment Books - "Stitched Textiles: Animals" Mrs Bertimus

"Stitched Textiles: Animals" Mrs Bertimus An inspirational, practical guide by textile artist Letitia Thompson, the world of Mrs Bertimus!

In this exciting new book Letitia shows you how to create colourful, contemporary, animal-themed stitched textiles with a quirky mix of vintage and whimsical style.

Letitia's subjects range from playful, dancing mice to crafty foxes, their personalities skillfully captured in stitch using free-motion machine embroidery and hand stitching. The progression from idea to stitch is developed in easy stages, providing a valuable insight into the author's creative process and the methods she uses to achieve her stunning textile artworks. Starting with a comprehensive materials and techniques section, the book includes three step-by-step projects, templates, and numerous finished pieces to spark your creativity, resulting in a unique source of ideas and inspiration for textile artists of all abilities.

Letitia Thompson's artwork is inspired by the slow pace and sense of community of her day-to-day village life. Being able to watch nature on her doorstep has permeated the imagery and storytelling of her work, and she continues to explore her make-believe world of painted, collaged and stitched characters. The name Mrs Bertimus was born from a neighbour's story of a blackbird that regularly visited for crumbs.
