Take handsewing to the next level!

Sewists are developing increasing interest in heritage handsewing techniques that add beautiful or couturelike finishing touches to the final project. Small handfinished details can quickly become a testament to the style, creativity, and skill of the sewist.

Handsewn offers step-by-step instructions for a comprehensive collection of hand-finishing and embellishing techniques, including hems, edges, buttonholes, cuffs, tacking layers and linings, attaching or inserting fabric and trims, embroidery, quilting, applique, and cutwork, among others.

In addition to the stitch technique directory, a section at the beginning covers supplies, tips and tricks, and how to troubleshoot mistakes. The book also includes illustrations and templates of sample decorative motifs with advice for using, transferring, and combining motifs, as well as creating one's own.

Handsewn is an encyclopedic reference guide to all the hand-finishing techniques that elevate a good sewing project into something outstanding.

Handy stitch reference for newbies (not a project or idea book). My only complaint is that she didn't show a picture of the stitches' backsides.
