Visit an exquisite embroidered garden in Floral Motifs to Embroider, the latest awe-inspiring book from a Japanese master embroidery artist.

Floral Motifs to Embroider

In seven chapters, Reiko Mori shares an abundance of motifs inspired by flowers, from delicate sprigs and bouquets to climbing vines and perching birds.

Blossoms as showy as roses and as modest as dandelions become masterpieces under Reiko Mori’s hand.

Themes within each chapter showcase these embroidered blooms. Delicate bridal accessories, precious teapots and teacups, a ballet slipper, and an astonishing floral alphabet are just a few of the elements embellished with elaborate flowers. You’ll even find a chapter dedicated to Japanese traditions captured in appliqué and embroidery.

A guide to embroidery-floss colors, essential notions and tools, basic techniques, and a how-to library of embroidery stitches will help aspiring embroidery artists find success. You’ll be inspired to dream up all kinds of ways to use these elegant motifs:


The Floral Dress motif atop a fabric-covered box
