Colourful Fun Embroidery
My first book, Colourful Fun Embroidery, is out now and I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to stock it in my shop!
I am absolutely delighted to bring you my first book – Colourful Fun Embroidery – which features 24 hand embroidery projects to brighten your day, and it’s out now! Published by White Owl Books.
Colourful Fun Embroidery: book description
Take time out to be creative and de-stress with these colourful, fun embroidery projects from Hello! Hooray! Ranging from things you could complete in an afternoon to others that you can take your time over, enjoy every step of the making process as you focus on feeling good through being creative. The finished makes will bring colour and joy to your home, workspace and wardrobe.
The projects in this book allow you to craft your creative time by selecting makes according to timescale. Choose a project from the ‘crafternoons’ section if you want that sense of joy at finishing something, a ‘medium makes’ project for the days where you have a little more time for crafting, or for something to really take your time over you could stitch one of the longer ‘pick me up’ projects.
Each project includes step-by-step instructions, beautiful photos and inspirational ideas for how to make each project your own. So take time to be creative with this colourful, feel-good craft book!
About the author
Clare Albans is a mama, maker and blogger living in Newcastle upon Tyne. A musician and teacher by trade, she found a creative outlet from her day job in crafting and now making is a huge part of her life. She started her blog, Hello! Hooray! in 2012 to share a variety of craft projects as well as recipes and lifestyle posts. Since becoming a mum in 2016 she has found a new focus and passion for embroidery, although Hello! Hooray! still encompasses all of her creative endeavours.
Hello! Hooray! has been featured in publications such as Craftseller magazine, and Bibelot Magazine (by author Chloe Owens) and Clare has also appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour. In 2020, Clare began working on Hello! Hooray! full-time, and now teaches embroidery workshops in and around Newcastle, as well as selling her patterns, kits and stitched items on her website. She is passionate about sharing the joys of hand embroidery and encouraging people to take time out to be creative!
