This beautiful new book is translated from the original Japanese book Darning Brooches by Hikaru Noguchi.   

Filled with inspirational images of her work, this is the perfect guide for those interested in preserving their garments and fabrics with mending techniques. With over 26 embroidery stitches and darning techniques, it covers how-to basics as well as providing inspirational ideas for seasoned stitchers,

All the basic darning stitches are included for beginners with step-by-step photographs, so you can mend your clothes and save them from landfill, as well as preserving memories by turning your fragments into mementoes. 

The invention of the 'Darning Brooch' allows you to give new life to precious fabric fragments you can't bear to part with by creating accessories that you can keep, gift or wear.  If you don’t feel like wearing visible mending on your clothes, you can wear them as accessories instead!  Use the fabric and thread you have at home to make these beautiful pieces, each one of which will be unique to you.

No previous sewing experience is necessary and full instructions for creating the brooches is included. 

Paperback, 96 pages.
