After attending Tama Art University and working as a handbag designer, Yumiko Higuchi launched her career as an embroidery artist in 2008. She is the author of multiple embroidery books and is based in Tokyo.
In Embroidered Animals, Yumiko focuses on the animal kingdom. From elegant birds to adorable rabbits and wonderfully simple sheep, the 25 motifs and patterns in this book offer both a modern flair and an organic true-to-nature style. The whimsical animal designs ranging from wild wolves, cheetahs, and giraffes to cuddly and cute bears, cats, dogs, monkeys, and pigs can be incorporated into any of the sewing projects included, such as bags, pillows, bookmarks, and sachets, so that beginner and experienced embroiderers can mix and match patterns according to their own interest and skill.
