Sashiko workshop - October 24th Cumbria Patchworkers
Sashiko workshop at Just Sew, Penrith
We delved into this technique at our monthly meeting in October, but I must admit it was not for me. I do like the idea behind the examples below but hated sewing the small white stitches onto the fabric by hand, it seemed to me that I unpicked more than I sewed. But not everyone likes the same obstacles in sewing, at least I gave it a go and I still have my square which might just become something in the future. I also bought some of the fabric which was on sale downstairs in the shop; some pretty blue with little owls on it, I think it was also one of the fabrics in the design below.
Examples of Sashiko included in a work in progress
