Embellish Me by Laurie Wisbrun

To close out our blog series on crafting titles, here’s a neat little book called Embellish Me: How to Print, Dye, and Decorate Your Fabric by Laurie Wisbrun.

Full disclosure: I have never used any of the techniques in this book, but now that I’ve read it I want to try them all!

“Embellish Me is the ultimate guide to achieving the perfect surface finish for your fabric-based projects. Comprehensive step-by-step instructions are accompanied by detailed illustrations that illuminate an extensive range of fabric alteration and embellishment techniques. Learn tie-dyeing, bleaching, and shibori; block, silk-screen, and digital printing; and beading, embroidery, and applique. This information-rich guide will equip you with all the information you need to apply these techniques to any number of fabric projects, from tote bags and clothes to cushion covers, lampshades, toys, and home furnishings.”
