Just one colour
If you love Japanese embroidery, then drop everything and buy this book! Regular readers will know I’m quite partial to this sort of thing, but this collection of embroidery projects from the amazing Yumiko Higuchi is even better than I expected.
From Japanese publishing house Bunka, One Colour Embroidery is 95 pages of beautifully photographed embroidery.
All projects are accompanied by easy-to-follow designs and basic embroidery stitch instructions – so you don’t need to know a single character of Japanese.
There are even a few designs that could be applied to Yumiko Higuchi’s trademark purses. Just lovely!
You can find more images from this book on Etsy – just do a search on the book title, One Colour Embroidery.
