I had so much fun with this project. I really enjoy embroidery, but I found that more than regular embroidery, I love Crewel Embroidery. The main difference being the floss or yarn that you use. In crewel you are using a wool crewel or tapestry yarn, and the texture is what makes it so fantastic.
The pattern includes a guide for embroidery, essentially like a road map, and a pattern to make the cushion.
I look at this cushion every day. I haven't taken to wishing on it, but I sure do love it. To be honest, it looks like something I spent a lot of money on....
There is a guide in the book, just like there is for the fabric, for the specific crewel yarns to get. I purchased all of mine from Purl Soho, and about 2 weeks ago, I emailed them with a list to make sure they had all the colors in stock. They are! So go forth! and wish on your own As You Wish cushion!
So to recap, with this gem of a book you are getting 5 full patterns, that I would sell for around 12.95 each all for 24.95. A steal! and a steal that is shipping!!
