Simple Sashiko : by Susan Briscoe
8 SASHIKO SEWING PROJECTS FOR THE MODERN HOME
Traditional Japanese embroidery technique, sashiko, is currently a major sewing trend in craft, interior design and fashion. The big stitches are used to create stunning, geometric patterns and texture to make home wares with a stylish, Japanese minimalist look.
This collection of 8 simple sashiko patterns allows you try the technique yourself--projects include a tote bag, greetings cards, cushion, table mats, coaster, pocket hanging, a long sampler and Ranru hanging.
Susan Briscoe is a leading expert in this traditional Japanese sewing technique, having first been introduced to sashiko in the early 1990s while teaching English in northern Japan.
