The Completed Sashiko Stitching Project

I’ve been much more productive in my spare time than in the studio lately, which is why this sashiko stitching project got finished in under a month. I guess I was also SO HAPPY to get back to stitching that I managed to squeeze in time to work on this whenever I could.

The finished square with borders is 13.25″ x 13.25″ cotton linen blend fabric, hand-stitched with cotton sashiko thread. It has a backing piece of fabric attached so that my friend Barb has the option of turning it into a throw pillow. I made this for her as part of a trade.

I finished it off with a border around the design, and it weirdly felt like it took the most time to do. I’m thrilled this turned out so well, and I started a new sashiko project a few days later.
