Synopsis

Japanese Sashiko Inspirations 25 Ways to Explore a Traditional Technique by Susan Briscoe

Sashiko is the Japanese method of decorative stitching to create striking patterns on fabric with lines of simple running stitch. Bring a touch of the Orient to your home with 25 unique projects exploring 12 essential methods for working with sashiko. Gain inspiration from the traditional Japanese pieces which inspired the project designs and a gallery of the author's sashiko pieces. Each chapter features a taster project, ideal for beginners to try the technique, then more challenging larger pieces to perfect new skills.
