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 colour as you join Alice Makabe on a stitching journey inspired by the art of botanical embroidery.
