Summary

Summary

From bed linens and tablecloths to book covers and monograms, The Maison Sajou Sewing Book presents twenty embroidery projects designed to bring refined French style into your home. With straightforward step sequences, patterns, and templates, even the most novice sewer will find pleasure in the delicate embroidery of monograms, pointelle borders, and drawn threadwork. While the sophisticated design of these projects recall a time when embroidery was an everyday activity for many women, even the most intricate will take hours, rather than days.
