The Japanese embroidery artist returns with a new collection of embroidery motifs, beautifully showcased in a range of purses. Higuchi's simple folk-inspired motifs of flora and fauna make for attractive, contemporary repeat patterns or quirky one-off designs that will satisfy even the experienced embroiderer. Step-by-step instructions for embroidering and making up the purses, plus a pull out pattern sheet, complete the line-up.

Postcard Reviews

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.
