About this deal

It is therefore important that your browser is configured to accept cookies for your preferences to take effect.

The book offers 12 large and 12 smaller mandalas to embroider, which Carina explains how to make through simple, beautiful stitch diagrams and keys.And I think Mandalas to Embroider is a perfect introduction to embroidery, as you can build your confidence by practicing your stitching on the smaller patterns, or do as I did and jump right into a large one! Once the pattern is transferred, just take your needle and floss and stitch along the lines to colour the designs any way you d like. I love that the Table of Contents includes a visual guide of every project in the book, to pique your curiosity, and give you a clue of where you might want to start.

The book is split into two halves: the first half includes clearly-illustrated stitch tutorials, instructions for preparing and finishing your work, and all the patterns, with colour palettes and stitching suggestions. I really love this book, and (gushing friendship moment) I'm really proud of Carina for designing it, she is so talented and her use of colour is always such a joy. They look just like normal printed paper and I wasn't even convinced that they were transfers when I first looked at them but I followed the instructions for transferring them onto fabric just to see but no matter what I try and I've tried a hotter iron and left the iron over them longer and just ended up with burnt paper and fabric, the ink will not transfer no matter what. Only 10 stitches have been used to create all the mandalas, and each one is explained and accompanied by clear, step-by-step diagrams at the beginning of the book.

As well as being nice to look at, the idea is that you can lose yourself in the relaxing process of stitching the pretty, geometric designs. Etsy’s 100% renewable electricity commitment includes the electricity used by the data centres that host Etsy. At the beginning is a page showing thumbnail images of all of them for easy selection, the designs featuring flowers, paisleys, abstracts and Christmas motifs. By following the delicate, repeating patterns in these stunning motifs, you can soothe your mind, slow down and treat yourself to much-needed me-time and tranquillity. Lark has been in the business of providing crafters with information and inspiration for 35 years, so we’re steeped in tradition.

You could easily follow the instructions to the letter and end up with a beautiful piece but Carina encourages readers to experiment to come up with their unique piece using different colours and stitches. With Carina's gentle guidance beginners can also learn how to display their creations in embroidery hoops, including the much-loved Dandelyne hoops which the 12 mini mandalas can fit inside perfectly.

This is a great book with beautiful patterns in it and I would have given it five stars if it wasn't for the fact that I can't get the iron on transfers to work.
