Project Description

On that class, I'm teaching you the Sashiko technique.

Now that you have all the tools, it's your turn! Make your own version, keep it classic or use it as a tool. You can change the colors, the fabrics and do something absolutely personal. I'm very curious about what you can do with Sashiko, don't hesitate show you work in progress. 

There are the steps : 

1 - choose a project, do you want your embroidery on an object, on a cloth, as a decoration or just a sample? 

2 - choose a pattern, copy one of the video or find one that you like on the internet

3 - choose your colors, indigo and white or different? 

4 - copy the pattern on the fabric and take your needle :)
