Simply Stitched with Appliqué by Yumiko Higuchi
Embroidery artist Yumiko Higuchi offers modern makers a fresh new spin on her beloved designs inspired by nature.
This book combines embroidery stitches with hand appliqué. Learn how to use felt, cotton and linen to create beautifully layered designs full of texture and contrast, then embellish with just a handful of basic embroidery stitches. With over 30 motifs inspired by nature, you'll find designs for hydrangeas, sunflowers, lilacs, tulips, poppies, birds, bees, strawberries and more. Use these motifs to create any of the sophisticated bags, pincushions, coasters, tea towels and wall art projects included in the book, or be inspired to design your own.
Full instructions on the preparation of templates and fabric, with stitch guides an colour suggestions. A beautiful book for those who like a minimal aesthetic.
