Product Description

Embroidery empress Jenny Hart taught her legion of fans the basics with the best-selling Stitch-It Kit and Sublime Stitching. Now she takes stitchers one step further with instructions and diagrams for more than 35 stitches, some published here for the first time. To top it off, Embroidered Effects includes dozens of original (and reusable) iron-on transfers. With lots of project photos for guidance, even beginners can learn how to stitch faux tattoos on their shirt sleeves, cheeky fan dancers on their shower curtains, and many more fun projects.

Jenny Hart is the artist behind the global business Sublime Stitching. Her work has appeared in Real Simple, Lucky, ReadyMade, Craft, and more. Jenny lives in Austin, Texas, where she is a member of the Austin Craft Mafia.

Well, first let me start by saying I am a huge Sublime Stitching fan ... I own every book/kit, and almost all of the patterns from the website. So, with my being such a huge Sublime Stitching fan coupled with the exciting product description here on Amazon and elsewhere; I had pretty high expectations. I do feel let down by this book, but perhaps my expectations were set too high.

Let me discuss the pros of this book first:

* Excellent Photography & Layout
* Pocket for holding transfers
* Expanded How-To Section (when compared with the Sublime Stitching book and Stitch-It-Kit)
* Expanded Resources Section
* Apx. 9 new patterns that you cannot find in other Sublime Stitching products: mixed drinks, feather dancer, goofy birds/cage, mahjong tiles/ "Mahjong" phrase, peacocks, stitch sampler, cameo, the phrase "Let Me Sleep" with some Z's, and some swirling lazy daisies/fern stitches.
* 8 decorative stitch combinations

Okay here are the cons:

* I was expecting there to be all new iron-on transfers in this book -- there are some, but many are in other Sublime Stitching products, such as: "Born To Stitch" (tattoo alphabet pattern pack from website), Robot Parts (from Craft Pad), Chandelier (from Craft Pad), Birds (from Sublime Stitching Book), and a Design from the Stitchable Stationary .
* A couple of the iron on transfers are technically "new", but are extremely similar to other Sublime Stitching Designs such as: Heart with knife, Mexican Sugar Skulls.
* Most of the stitches in this book are straight out of the Stitch-It-Kit and Sublime Stitching book.

First of all, I have to say that this book is much larger than it appears online -- it's a big, heavy, gorgeous Chronicle presentation that's about 8x10" and almost two inches thick. It's a well-made delicious feast!

The graphics and photography are more delicious and rich than usual, even for a Chronicle book. I really have to applaud the art director. The photographs are full-bleeds and the design makes it easy to read and well-paced.

This is important because there is SO much information in this whopper! I've done a couple of books myself, and mine are much shorter on text, so I am especially impressed with the amount of research and writing that clearly must have gone into this work. It's so apparent from start to finish that an incredible amount of thought went into it. I also really enjoyed the tone of this book compared to most craft books, because it's not overly done. It's obvious that the author took great care and a lot of time to craft each chapter carefully. The result is a very enjoyable read that conveys just the right amount of information without being overbearing or verbose.

Some of the projects really took my breath away: the photo transfer portrait, the glow-in-the-dark chandelier magnets, the cameo shirt... these are obviously some gems that Jenny's been saving for just the right moment, and here it is! And of course the book is designed so well that it includes pages of ready-to-go transfers in the back for all the patterns and a spacious (and cute) pouch inside the front cover to store them after use (so you can use them again and again).

I have to say I'm thoroughly impressed. I've followed Jenny's work since she started Sublime Stitching, and I feel like this book is the pinnacle of her career to date.

Hooray! I own the Stitch-It Kit and the Sublime Stitching book (with the patterns) and I love them both. I really like "Embroidered Effects," but advanced stitchers are unlikely to get a great deal of information from it. However, even for someone like me (in the mediocre category) there is a lot to learn. There are several stitching techniques that haven't shown up in either of the other books I own. As always, Jenny Hart's instructions are well-written and well-illustrated and the included patterns are fantastic! They are drawn in her characteristic style and fun to stitch. Perhaps there are better embroidery books out there, but I have yet to find one that sparks my interest the way Ms. Hart's do! I immediately want to stitch everything I see.

I started embroidering last year, and I learned from Jenny's stitch it kit. I made a tea towel for my boss, who loved it. A year later, I own the craft pad, the sublime stitching book, multiple patterns from her website, and I just received this book for Christmas.
There are some recycled patterns, which I knew about before I asked for the book, so I wasn't disappointed. I wanted it more for ideas. Which for me, it delivered. Learning on my own, and only embriodering for a short time, I wanted to look at the projects, and get my own ideas.
Thus far, I have done the embroidered cameo project, exactly as is, and I have done versions of the tattooed sleeve, the bluebird jeans, and the custom western shirt. All have turned out beautifully, and I've picked up some new stitches, and skills from the book.
The pictures are nice, I wish they would have included close ups of some of them, but I didn't need them to finish the projects.
I liked that the book just wasn't, oh take a shirt, and embrioder it. There's some ideas I wouldn't have thought about on my own, such as tracing an existing pattern on fabric, that's super simple, and yet, makes such a difference.
If you like Jenny Hart, I think you'll enjoy this book. Just beware if you have most of her books, there's a lot of repeats. I myself, didn't care, the book was worth it to me for the ideas it gave me.
