One Thousand and one Nights

I chose this book because of the persian theme. I wanted something colorful, with gold, beads, and so on...

The fabric is hand dyed with curcuma and onions.

I used a wide varieties of stitches :

stem, back, split stitch, laizy daisies, bullions, french knots, oyster stitch, cast-on stitch, whipped spider web, satin stitch, double chain stitch, eyelet, coral stitch, lattice work, wheatear stitch


I do not own the book. You can see the original cover here :
