8 Sashiko Sewing Projects for the Modern Home by Susan Briscoe
The 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 homewares with a stylish, Japanese minimalist look.
This collection of eight 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.
