And Margaret Beal is the pioneer of the practice. For the first time, she gathers her expertise in book form, with photographs showing finished pieces and diagrams and drawings illustrating the process. All the principal techniques are thoroughly explained, from choosing and cutting fabric to using three-dimensional materials. Appliqué, reverse appliqué, shadow work, piercing, weaving, and bead making all receive in-depth coverage. Projects range from a pocket mirror to a variety of brooches.
