Sashiko (Japanese Embroidery) with Jennie Rayment
Sashiko stitches represent grains of rice. Traditionally worked with white thread on blue fabric. Modern Sashiko now uses a variety of colours.
It is basically a simple running stitch. The action of adding fabric to the needle is a little different from traditional English embroidery.
Jennie shows you a delightful box onto which she has worked this stitching, and also shows you how easy it is to make yourself and the suggestion that you might like to use this an embroidered etui box – i.e. housing your scissors, thimbles, thread and needles.
