Themed on some of Jan Constantine’s most iconic embroidery collections – Bugs & Beasts, Love and Flags – these pretty notebooks are the perfect size to carry in your handbag for making lists and notes when you are out and about, but they are also substantial enough to keep on your desk at home or work. With half lined paper and half plain, the notebooks are great for both lists and sketches. You may wish to use them specifically for your sewing projects – for keeping a record of fabrics, threads, measurements and patterns, for example, and for jotting down ideas and planning your own creations inspired by the beautiful photographs of some of Jan Constantine’s most colourful appliqué and hand-embroidery designs.
BUGS & BEASTS – Creatures from the garden and the seaside are an endless source of fascination, and ladybirds, butterflies, crabs and lobsters often feature in Jan’s exquisite embroidery. LOVE – A perennial favourite subject, Love, Je t’aime, hearts and lips are recurring themes in Jan’s colourful appliqué designs. FLAGS – The graphic shapes and bold colours of Union Jacks, Stars & Stripes and Tricolour flags cry out for unlimited reinvention and never seem to loose their appeal.
