Pup-lovers, showcase your stitches with the 380 pup-themed embroidery designs, how-tos, and templates of I Love My Dog Embroidery.
Created by embroidery artist MakikoArt and six other amazing embroidery artists, this “dog fanciful” collection of stitch motifs celebrates all things canine. With this lovely embroidery guide, you can create all manner of pups, including:
The sweet Labrador retriever, fluffy poodle, noble German shepherd, and many others. Dogs doing what they do best - classic poses, postures, and tricks—like 'roll over,' 'give me your paw,' and the ever-popular 'rub my tummy'. Pooches disguised as people - the farmer, the artist, the businessman - and who can resist the sneaky but lovable mailman? Mutts in different styles and shapes, including borders, frames, and alphabets
You’ll also find guidance on how to customize a motif to fit your favorite Fido, plus a gallery of project ideas for showcasing your stitches. So grab a needle and floss and take everything in your home and wardrobe from drab to double-dog fabulous!
