26. Gestickte Miniaturbilder by Peter Baumann (Embroidered Miniatures)

In German language.

Peter Baumann describes his techniques in making his miniature embroideries, and his choice of fabrics and using textile paints, which I find helpful.

He also shares the instructions to numerous projects, including slightly larger than 4cm squares, like the oval one in the book cover. The patterns are actual sizes (below: 4cm x 4cm).

He has a website and you can try reading it in english through google´s translate: http://baumann-gesticktelandschaften.de/

He has been embroidering and exhibiting since 1986, and has also won several embroidery competitions. He was a skilled mason and  a policeman.

    Hi, Vince! That’s another gorgeous book I didn’t know… beautiful work by a policeman, who would have thought?
    Thanks for sharing! 🙂
    Oh, and by the way… you could add the total of books you have to the sidebar of your blog. I’d love to know (and see the numbers growing! 😀 ).

    Hi Samanta,

    I really like his technique and he makes real miniatures (4cm x 4cm)!

    Thanks for the tip. I guess it is time to catalog the books so I know what I have. I am also thinking of a rubber stamp or sticker to put on all the books.

    Oooohhh if you’re really going to label your books… you have GOT to do it with embroidery! How about a small embroidered label for each book? And fabric book sleeves for the ones that need more protection?
    I love embroidered labels!

    Nice idea. But I do not have the luxury. ^_^ Both in making embroidered labels and book sleeves. I know some who does it. I guess, I treasure my books a different way.
