Following the success of Beautiful Botanical Embroidery, Japanese
embroidery artist Alice Makabe explores and celebrates her love of
pattern through floral embroidery.
Organized by season,
you'll find soft, muted motifs to embroider in springtime, refreshing
patterns for summer, warm, rich color combinations for autumn and bold,
vivid hues to brighten up the winter. A single motif can be used to
create a nearly endless number of patterns, just by changing the color
scheme or orientation.
In addition to over 20 floral
motifs, the book also includes instructions for ten embroidered
projects, such as purses, brooches, drawstring pouches, sachets, and
bookmarks. These beautiful hand embroidered items brighten up everyday
life and make thoughtful gifts.
Experiment with pattern and color as you join Alice Makabe on a stitching journey inspired by the art of botanical embroidery.
