With dozens of beautiful and simple geometric patterns, kogin embroidery offers fresh inspiration and authentic technique to proponents of the decorative mending movement. Colorful photos offer step-by-step instruction for learning this simple counted thread embroidery technique.

Once you’ve mastered the basics, try your hand at one of the 25 adorable and easy projects included in the book.

You’ll find and assortment of pretty brooches, barrettes and hair ties, pouches and coin purses, framed samplers, pincushions, and ornaments, plus potholders, coasters, and placemats for the home.
