Paint, Stitch, Play!

In The Art of Whimsical Stitching, bestselling author and teacher Joanne Sharpe shares her favorite, go-to methods for creating exuberant stitch art. If you're a sewer or quilter, you'll take your stitching in a new direction with paints, markers, and dyes. If you're a mixed-media artist, you'll learn to embellish your work with stitching.

Follow step-by-step instructions and photos demonstrating a dozen inspiring techniques, including collage, stenciling, free-motion stitching, fused applique lettering, needle felting, doodle machine and hand embroidery, and more! Then, transform your custom fabric into playful pillows and bags, art quilts, journals, and other fun and funk-tional projects. Joanne's whimsical artwork and a "sketchbook" of designs you can adapt for your own work round out this colorful, inspirational guide.

Review:

"The projects are at the heart of the book, and Sharpe's energetic color choices are the uniting factor. Those open to free-form stitching will appreciate the freedom inherent in the improvisational techniques presented. While art quilters are the most likely audience for Sharpe's ideas, stitchers and mixed-media artists who incorporate fabric into their work may find this compilation inspiring." --Library Journal

"If you are as inspired by typography as we are, Joanne Sharpe needs to be on your radar. Fanciful, fresh, fun, and encouraging are the words that come to mind when looking at her new book." --Generation Q Magazine
