|120 Original Embroidery Designs by Yoko Saito is her newest book. We all fell in love with this book! In fact we’re all getting it. In this book, Yoko Saito has created embroidery patterns for 120 original designs. She often combines the embroideries with applique and quilting to create what she calls "patchwork embroidery." Like all of her work, these designs are equally detailed and unique. And in the tradition of Japanese quilting, all done in lovely neutral beiges and taupes to create simple elegance. |
There's no question this is a wonderful "how to" book. Yoko Saito recreates the alphabet for you, as well as elements of everyday life, reduced into simple patterns, i.e. a grocery cart or a tape dispenser (go figure :). There are 120 original embroidery patterns as well as 20 different patterns to make wall hangings, bags, pouches, and more.
Using the Neutral Presencia Perle Cotton sampler pack embroidery thread and our Serenity Taupe fabrics, you, too, can recreate these wonderful patchwork embroidery patterns—houses, florals and more. A truly lovely and inspirational.
