Description

Popular author Corinne Lapierre creates a charming range of 20 exquisite folk embroidered felt birds. Including a swan, a hen, a goose, a partridge, an owl, a dove, a peacock and a flamingo. Beautifully made in lovely, soft colours, the birds are filled with toy stuffing and embellished with folk-style surface embroidery in different-coloured threads. The stitches include chain stitch, feather stitch, fly stitch, running stitch, blanket stitch, French knots and satin stitch. There are also bead and sequin embellishments on some birds.

The book includes lovely, hand-drawn step-by-step illustrations and there are same-size templates at the back of the book for all the designs. The birds all have optional ribbon hangers for display.

About Corinne Lapierre

Corinne Lapierre developed a passion for crafts and textiles from a very young age, and has always had an avid desire to learn about traditional techniques such as weaving, dyeing, silk painting and embroidery. She studied Fine Art in France before moving to the UK to study Fashion Design in Manchester. After working as a fashion designer for a few years, Corinne studied millinery, through which she discovered felt and its many qualities. In 2009 Corinne started her own craft business as a felt maker and quickly realized there was a demand for craft kits using good quality, natural materials. Her company, based in an old Baptist school in Leeds, UK, sells an expanding range of craft kits and patterns designed for adults and children. Corinne makes regular appearances on Create & Craft TV and lives in Yorkshire with her three children and two cats.
