Japanese inspired embroidery and stitching

I started a new project on embroidery, after posting about stitchette embroidery patterns earlier.  As I have never done embroidery, I got some Japanese stitching and embroidery books from a local bookstore.  You can find similar books at Superbuzzy which specializes in Japanese crafts, books, fabric and cute stuff, with international shipping available.

I really love doing these.  I’m thinking of doing book jackets or bookmarks which can be done up quickly.  I’ll see how it goes.  For the moment, I’m obsessed with getting the images stitched up because they’re really cute!



  1. I love that tree! What kind of stitches are those (the leaves)?

    Anita: Oh dear, I don’t know the official name for this stitch. I use a four point stitch but’s it’s hard to describe this in words. Another way to do the leave is using french knots. I tried it and it works well too. Think I’m going to use it for another tree next round.
