5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic Feb. 10 2008
By Kris
The actual book section is colourful with lots of pictures, well set up and easy to read, covering all the information you would need to start embroidering. Although I find much better visuals of the actual stitches in "Doodle Stitching" by Aimee Ray, there is cartoon sketches of each stitch covered with full explanation of how to execute them.

There is a HUGE assortment of patterns in this book! Every theme you could think of for boys, girls, baby, food, lettering, banners etc. I have already used the patterns a dozen times. Theres pouches in the front and back to place cut pattern peices once you've used them, as each peice can be used up to 9 times, or possibly more.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute patterns, but not as unique as I had hoped for... Jan. 9 2007
By J. Penn - Published on
When I saw that this book was coming out, I knew that I would have to get it. I love the unique patterns on Jenny Hart's website- they're fun and edgier than the usual flower basket patterns you find at craft stores. That's why I was suprised when I flipped through this book for the first time. The iron-on patterns are sweet (baby bottles and cherries), but so simple that I could have drawn them myself. I suggest actually flipping through the patterns in this book before you buy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly what I expected, but... Jan. 3 2007

Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I admit I bought this book anticipating oodles of yummy embroidery designs by the authoress, akin to the ones she has on her website. I didn't really need the embroidery instructions, which are okay. However, I was disappointed in the number of UNIQUE images; instead, there are less images but they are duplicated in many different sizes (for example, a teacup in several sizes) and none of the designs rival the ones you can buy from her website. I would have liked more flowers and animals, for example. The spiral binding is very nice as is the storage pocket in back; very usable. If you are a beginning embroiderer or just want a book with basic images, this one is fine.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disapointed May 25 2007
By Nicholaus LaRow - Published on
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
The book is very well made. A nice spiral binding and two pockets for used transfers. The instruction section of the book is short, but easy to follow. I have done some sewing but no embroidery and I didn't have any problems getting started on some basic stitchs

The transfers section of the book is the majority of it. Actually when I pulled the book out of the box I was very excited, I thought I would have tons of neat designs to embroider. :(

The Sublime stitching website has a lot of awesome, unique and complex designs but the ones in this book are basic at best. Not only are the transfers basic, I don't think they are too stylish. I could draw a little cherry and stem that had more flair. Then it has 2-4 different sizes of each transfer. This is just not needed in todays day and age these resizing can be done quickly with a photocopier or home printer/scanner. I would say save your money and get some transfer paper and use your home printer or books to trace your own patterns.

Also the author warns several times that these transfers may not wash off. Which might be a precaution against the few times the transfer reacts with certain types of fabric. I haven't used my transfers yet because I'm pretty sure I want to return this item.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great sequel to the Stitch-It kit! Jan. 2 2007
By K. Mitchell - Published on
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I previously bought the Stitch-It kit, which I'd probably recommend first if you've never done any embroidery. If you have, this is a great book to own. The how-to is short and simple but useful, and there are literally hundreds of patterns, including cats, dogs, letters, words, shoes, make up, rocket ships, baby faces, and more that I can't remember now. Yes, the drawings are a bit simple, but that's part of their charm. Don't forget they can be further embellished! I love that there are so many, I can always find a pattern to embroider! I am giving it four stars rather than five because I was hoping for a more comprehensive section on embroidery stitches.

If you want a lot of basic iron-on patterns with some additional info on embroidery stitches, this is a great book to buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not like her other patterns Sept. 21 2006
By plath - Published on
If you're looking for the hip patterns that Jenny Hart is known for through her site, or through her first embroidery kit-- Stitch It, then don't bother with this book. I was disappointed that these are much more run-of-the-mill designs, and don't have the cool retro-y feel that her other patterns have had. The designs here are much more basic and many are bare-bones line drawings with no detail. While there are a TON of them, it just wasn't my cup of tea this time.
