The Simple Art of Japanese Temari: 45 Traditional and Contemporary Designs

The geometric designs, glowing with colour and incorporating complementary patterns, are enhanced with beads and metallic threads, offering a rich source of inspiration to all embroiderers, whatever their skill levels. Very little in the way of materials and equipment are needed, and all are described in full at the start of the book, and there are full-colour diagrams and photographs throughout to explain, step-by-step, the basic designs and techniques. Once you have mastered these, you will be unable to resist creating beautiful temari balls of your own, and either keep them as works of art in their own right, or turn them into jewellery, keyrings and other decorative items.
