Miniature Needle Painting Embroidery

Vintage Portraits, Florals & Birds

by Trish Burr
Small, embroidered "paintings" can have all the detail, form, and beauty of a larger piece—except they're much quicker to stitch! These fresh and appealing designs all capture the pretty, romantic images typical of the Victorian and post-Victorian eras. All the projects—which include traditional portraits, birds, and flowers—have detailed thread diagrams, and easy-to-follow instructions teach the basic stitches.
"Burr's designs draw from Victorian- and Edwardian-era postcards featuring flowers, birds, and petite portraits, and a few easy projects that introduce the fundamental concepts are provided. The miniature size of the projects allow for quicker, easier completion, and the finished projects can be framed or incorporated into goods such as needle books or cushions. VERDICT The intricate detail of needle painting will delight embroiderers who like photorealistic projects, and Burr's collection provides an overview of the basics of this technique.” —Library Journal
