Sashiko! What a fun word to say. It’s a Japanese style of embroidery, all done with a simple running stitch, that can be used as a reinforcement technique or decorative element. There are lots of pre-printed kits with sashiko patterns, which make it great beginner style to try. You can see my own first attempt at sashiko in this post here, as a part of my yearly Try Something New Every Month challenge.
As always, when preparing myself to try a craft technique I found loads of ideas and tutorials that were inspiring and wanted to share them!
