More Inspired Designs for Crocheted Edges and Trims
Add an exquisite touch to your work!
A sequel to the best-selling book, The Beaded Edge, this guide teaches beaders and crocheteres alike how to add personal touches to a wide variety of fabric projects using gorgeous edges and embellishments. The Beaded Edge 2 explores Traditional Turkish oya, the delicate edgings for fabric—created using thread, knots, and beads. Designer Midori Nishida was fascinated by these edgings, and created a series of them based on traditional motifs of flowers, fruit, leaves and vines, and geometric designs such as scallops or stars.
Step-by-step instructions for 18 edgings comprise the book, along with inspirational photos showing their use as trims for clothing, accessories, and home furnishing: everything from dresses, collars, pockets, cuffs, and hems; handbags, scarves, hats, and jewelry; and pillows, tablecloths, desk accessories, and kitchen linens. A section also discusses the history and traditions of Turkish oya.
The Beaded Edge 2 combines rich Turkish traditions with diverse and captivating designs that you'll be proud to place on your pillow or around your wrist. Soft cover; 88 pages; Interweave Press.
