Summer Sashiko

I have decided to post a few tiny stories about what has happened in the workroom over the summer.

This was so much fun, I decided to find a real life application for my fairly new shirt which started developing a hole on the yoke near the collar. I Put an entire yoke sized piece of cotton under the yoke, before embroidering this.336E1991-C768-48AF-AABF-50565662613F

Look out for your own sashiko kit (in the sale!) and have a go…
