This is a wonderful book for making sewing embroidery on costumes so much easier, you could just use the techniques to print too and save stitching time - thanks Search Press.

I love Trish's embroidery, I have been following her on social media for some time. Its good to see her patterns transfers. They transfer great onto the fabric and have good range of smaller and bigger pieces.

The cover of the book is beautiful and explains exactly what you will get in the book, which is over 70 lovely iron on transfers all shown with fully embroidered colour pictures. The transfers are clear and inviting and for someone experienced in embroidery - it is like an Aladdin's cave.

This book isn't quite what I expected but I do like it, I just hadn't read the description properly ahead of time. The vast majority of the pages are filled with designs to transfer onto fabric so that you can embroider the images and the first few pages are photos from all of Trish's previous embroidery books of the original embroidered works. In those books are where you'll find the tutorials and thread colours and step-by-step instructions if you wish to follow her closely but of course you don't have to, you can either attempt to colour match by eye from the photos in the book, or choose your own colour scheme and just go for it. The designs are intricate with plenty of details, most would fit in a 3-4" hoop with some larger designs included. Many of the pages include a number of designs on each and all are very clearly categorised and labelled by original book title so that you can easily go and find the corresponding instructions in that book if you wish to follow her tutorials. The transfer process itself takes a little practice but the written and visual instructions in the book are clear and by the second go I had it nailed. I also extended the time to 1.5 minutes which gave a much clearer outline and worked really well. I used the same transfer 3 times and it looks like it would still work well enough a 4th time, albeit it gets feinter each time. The flower and bird illustrations are really lovely and very much my cup of tea so I'm really looking forward to transferring and then embroidering those. All in all, it's a good book, especially good if you have the books with the original art in. Overall, I'd recommend it.

It's challenging to write a book review about a book that has very few words in it. But I'm sure I'll manage to say something. The most notable Something is this: if you struggle with transferring embroidery designs accurately, that struggle is about to end (Yay!)

So please allow me to present this new book on the market - soon to be released, bound to be very popular, and definitely worth getting your pre-order in!

Trish Burr's Embroidery Transfers is one of the many new embroidery books published by Search Press this year, as part of the 50th Anniversary celebration. They sent me an advanced copy, which took me a full three minutes to read.

And that's a good thing - because this isn't a book you have to read. It's a book of iron-on embroidery transfers featuring designs from Trish Burr's embroidery books, plus a few bonus designs.

The whole point of this book is to allow you to jump straight into the fun part of embroidery without having to worry about the difficulties of hand-transferring the designs.

At the beginning of the book, you'll find full colour images of the embroideries that are featured in Trish's many books.

There are no instructions for the embroideries in this book. If you need instructions, you'll find all the projects detailed in Trish's original books.

From Trish's iconic needlepainting projects featuring flowers and birds, to her miniature projects, to her "whitework with color" projects - you'll find them all ready and waiting for your iron!

There are instructions on how to use the iron-ons (you can get about three good impressions from them, so they can be re-used), and then the iron-ons themselves, which are nicely spaced on the pages so that they're not fiddly to cut out.

The back cover of the book is a handy folder, so that you can tuck your cut iron-ons safely inside for future use.

If you struggle with transferring embroidery designs, if you long to work Trish's designs but are hesitant because of the transfer process, this problem goes completely away with this book!
