Author of the very successful Simply Stitched, this new book by Yumiko Higuchi combines embroidery stitches with hand applique. 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.
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, including Simply Stitched. Visit her website at www.yumikohiguchi.com
