Sashiko

I went down the youtube worm hole.. AGAIN. This time using "embroidery" as my search term as lately i've become obsessed with this tedious hobby. As if I needed another hobby. Sometimes while i'm in the YT hole, it feels like a big ole waste of time, but usually I find some pretty interesting stuff. This time was no different.

I found some great videos and images of Japanese embroidery called Sashiko and now i'm totally obsessed! 

Sashiko. It's my latest Obsession.

Want.

Want.

Love.

Love.

I love the simple white stitching patterns against the blue fabrics and how up-close it's very imperfect, but from far away it looks pretty perfect. What a great way to both construct and make your cloth more durable.

Function is a beautiful thing!

These prints would be great patterns for my next sashiko project. Stay tuned!
