刺し子・Sashiko

Sashiko is beginning to have an appeal lately. I viewed a show on NHK about its contemporary interpretation recently and it doesn’t seem any different than a lot of the embroidery I’m seeing on-line. I’ve had books on the topic for quite sometime now and am giving them a closer look. I have the thread and needles, just don’t have that special thimble yet. I’m sure I will manage. In the meantime, I’m slowly pulling together fabric pieces and imagery I want to work with.

The crisscross patterning on this old Japanese fireman’s coat was created with sashiko.
