Artful Botanical Embroidery by Alice Makabe
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. 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. Templates and really clear instructions make this suitable for beginners as well as stitchers with experience.
