Sashiko


I've been interested in trying Sashiko Japanese embroidery for a long, long time. I finally decided there's no time like the present and jumped in.


I printed the image from the web, taped it to the front window for a light box, taped the cotton fabric over that and traced it with a chalk pencil. Then I lightly sprayed it with hair spray and left it to dry. If it turns out half-way decent, I hope to make a small zippered notions bag. We'll see.
