Colorful photos offer step-by-step instruction for learning this simple counted thread embroidery technique. Beginners will discover how to prepare the thread and fabric, how to read kogin charts, and how to make the basic straight stitches that comprise kogin motifs. Once you've mastered the basics, try your hand at one of the 25 adorable and easy projects included in the book. Featuring bright and modern color schemes, these accessories are designed for contemporary life. You'll find and assortment of pretty brooches, barrettes and hair ties, pouches and coin purses, framed samplers, pincushions, and ornaments, plus potholders, coasters, and placemats for the home. Once you get started stitching, we guarantee you won't be able to stop!
