Only Had One Or had one or tapestries and were short on techniue This book has page after page of beautiful modern wall hangings with various stitches and knots as well as a few other home decor items The photos are beautiful my page pics below don t do them justice and the stitches and techniues are very clear particularly given the numerous closeup step by step images included with each project I had never heard of Rachel Denbow before
and am so glad her book popped p in my customers am so glad her book popped Soft Focus up in my customers bought this also bought list This is one of my favorite craft books of all time and I have A LOT in many different techniues This book was such a joy to go through Each project built on the last one so that you felt like you were learning new things and didn t get bored I even loved the color choices I normally skim books like these maybe try out a few projects or justse it for inspiration but not this one It s a beautiful book with beautiful projects and lots of stuff to learn I have other books on weaving and none come close to how great this one is Like many crafters I first discovered Rachel s weaving tutorials on the A Beautiful Mess blog and her instructions got me started with weaving Her book is a great expansion on those beginner tutorials and her Alien Chastity Belt use of color is so inspiring I have given this book as a gift several times with a collection of yarns and other fibers and a loom Unlike other books about weaving this one goes beyond just wall hangings which is kind of fun and different She alsoses materials that are mostly easy to find a pet peeve of mine is when craft books se expensive or hard to find materials And just like her blog tutorials the instructions are easy to follow Even the simplest projects end with a great result I m really enjoying dipping into this book for inspiration and techniues It s clearly written and well presented.
