The New Sashiko

A Fresh Approach to Japanese Embroidery

sashikonami

Description

Here is an innovative new style of sashiko from a leading embroidery and patchwork artis whoi combines her love of sashiko with her fondness for piecework to create a whole new style of sashiko stitches and applications. Some of these patchworks give you a chance to play with patterns, colours and textures to create strikingly original bags, pouches, tableware and accessories.

The 11 sashiko stitches (three of them original) and 23 projects feature:
  • Rows of uneven running stitches to create jagged stripe and check patterns that look fantastic on any item
  • Fun asymmetrical patterns created with white threads on pastel fabrics to create brightly-colored textured table settings
  • Traditional stitches applied to vividly-colored fabrics (often with two different thread colors) for a radical new look
  • Contrasting stitches on patches to create charming tote bags, potholders and more

Running stitches are free and relaxed. Straight stitches form easy geometric shapes – like a triangle with a stem to make a fun, minimalist flower. Elements from traditional patterns are recombined in fresh and exciting ways so try them on your jeans, your floor pillows or in a full-sized quilt, and enjoy adding your own personality to these projects. There is no end to the great ideas that you will find in this book!
