These Japanese Craft Books seem to be rather addictive. I'm afraid I have bought quite a few now but I am too ashamed to show them all at once, you might think I have a problem, and it may very well be true, but hey, it isn't bothering me.
They really are such beautiful books, the photography and styling is a feast for the eyes and they are so inspiring. This book inspired me to start a little embroidery. I don't really know how to embroider but I am learning on the job so to speak. I hope it will make a nice little panel to perhaps add to a dress for Tilly, as in this photograph, or maybe to embellish a bag or something.
I will share some more images from the book tomorrow. I need to try to work out how to add them to that great site http://huangfamily.com/craftingjapanese/
as I don't think this particular book appears on there yet. I need to take some better pictures first though, the ones I have so far are rubbish. Of course this all helps distract me from acres of Denim....
