Discover the best projects, images, techniques and more in this special issue, The Best of Australian Smocking & Embroidery.
Like so many forms of handwork, smocking offers a peaceful progression of stitching that relaxes the soul and feeds our need to be creative. With each rhythmic stitch, we adorn the design surface in a pattern of color or sometimes the simplicity of tone-on- tone texture that serves as both embellishment and a means of securing the pleated fabric.
It’s genius really; smocking enthusiasts take steps to create their garment and richly detail it at the same time. Even more enticing is that much of what we smock is for our precious little ones, and through the years, Australian Smocking & Embroidery is where we have turned for our inspiration. The collection of baby and children’s patterns within the pages of this issue reveals the many beautiful reasons why.
Highlights of this product include:
- 8 multi-sized patterns.
- Bonnets, bishops, button-on suit, and more!
- Learn to smock with step-by-step photography.
