Sashiko projects - finished!
Lesley Bills sent me a photo of the sashiko kinchaku bag she started in our class on Saturday - already finished! She wrote -
Really enjoyed the class on Saturday - here's my finished bag... enjoyed making it - nice to get a project finished. Put the bag together last night - good instructions which made it so easy - thanks again
Love the coordination with the thread, lining and flower ends on the cord too.
Some sashiko projects are a bit more involved and take a little longer to complete. Joyce Petrie made this lovely wall hanging after our class in Dunfermline last year, where we combined sashiko with applique. I like the way she has mounted the panel on hessian, which gives it a great Japanese country feeling.
Thanks for the photos!
