Stitches: New approaches

Here in this book you can find all the stitches. And in a new way, not only in a conventional way. You can try to do the stitch in a variety of threads: matt, smooth, fine, thick etc . And vary the size of the stitch. Work as large as the thread, or work the stitch as small as possible. You can also try to use several different threads in one needle.
It´s booring that the picture in the book is in black and white, but it can also give you a challenge to do the stitch in a several colours and look at the reslults!
I den här boken finns alla stygn du kan tänka dig. Författaren uppmanar till att sy stygnen på olika sätt:
Sy stygnen i olika sorters trådar, matta, mjuka, tunna, tjocka, snodda, ulliga mm mm
Klipp tygremsor och använd till garn........
Sy olika stora stygn, så stora det går eller så små det går
Sy med flera olika trådar i samma nål osv osv
Det är synd att bilderna i boken är svartvita, men det kan ju utmana en till att sy i en massa olika färger och överaskas av resultatet!
