Japanese embroidery, to me, is always so beautifully delicate, and this book showcases the art of embroidery to perfection.
I love the folk art designs that adorn the bag and purse projects and the flamingos are my absolute favourite.
There is a pattern sheet included, so the designs can be traced to your fabric and along with the written instructions for each project, there are drawings to help guide you.
There is a lot of technique help and tips to give your project a perfect finish.
The designs will inspire you to create your own unique and personal style, and can be used to decorate cushions clothes and so much more.-- Tracy Shephard * Postcard Reviews *
