Free “Hoopla: The Art of Unexpected Embroidery” Book Giveaway and Pattern Download!

by Nikki

Have you ever wanted to make needlepoint nipple doilies? If so, Hoopla: The Art of Unexpected Embroidery — written by Leanne Prain, the co-author of 2009’s bestselling Yarn Bombing: The Art of Crochet & Knit Graffiti — is the anarchistic DIY craft book for you. Hoopla‘s twenty-eight innovative embroidery patterns will teach readers how to stitch a mythical jackalope, a ransom note pillow, and mean yet dainty knuckle-tattoo church gloves.

Click here (right-click save) for a free pattern download from the book! The Home Invasion pattern — stitching six-legged intruders onto existing staid/floral table clothes, place mats, and pillow cases — was designed by Sarah Terry who was alarmed at the amount of insects she encountered in her new home.

This giveaway is now closed.

If you’d like to join Hoopla‘s author Leanne and guest artists in person for an evening of strange hand-making, crafty debates, book signings, and fun, check out her book tour dates.
