Love Stitching is a fabulous new collection of decorative appliqué and hand-embroidery projects from Jan Constantine, featuring some of her bestselling designs for cushions, throws, wall hangings and other home accessories, as well as aprons and bags.

A fabulous follow-up to her first book, Heirloom Embroidery, which focused on traditional embroidery passed down through the generations, Love Stitching takes a more modern approach, with the use of bright colours and strong shapes in a series of bold, striking designs. Capturing a mix of nostalgia, romance, patriotism, exuberance and celebration, the funky pop art feel of the Love Stitching collection will inspire homemakers of all ages to get stitching.

Inspired by some of Jan’s favourite things, the projects are arranged in five thematic chapters: ‘Love & Hearts’, ‘In the Country’, ‘Flying the Flag’ and ‘Beside the Sea’. Suitable for beginners and established embroiderers alike, the projects are easy to re-create, with step-by-step instructions, design templates and clear explanations of techniques and stitches used.

Using a mixture of colourful wool felts, and both plain and gingham cottons and linens, the stunning designs in Love Stitching will be a welcome addition to any home, whether it be modern, traditional or country in style.
