Marvellous Motifs

Marvellous Motifs by Sharon Briggs is a collection of 19 motifs that can be used alone or joined together for larger projects. There are several hearts, like the Twin Hearts which are perfect for wedding and anniversary cards, some square motifs that can be used for making mats or shawls or just simple bookmarks and some 6 sided motifs can be used as snowflakes or joined to make doilies. Some of the designs are based around roses and some around daisies. A number of them are ideal as decorations for gift boxes or bags. Two of the designs were created so that they could be used together to make a larger project, either something small like a pin cushion or a larger item like a doily. Most of these designs are quite dense rather than open and lacy so that they will work well in projects like shawls.
All of the designs are in visual format with accompanying written instructions and include indications of level of difficulty and techniques used.
