Sashiko Slow Stitch Sunday from Life in the Scrapatch



Today I started a new slow stitch sashiko project.


I really enjoy these small hand stitching.

This is the back of my project.
I use solid fabric that does not have a front or back side for sashiko.
I have no idea if I am "doing it wrong."
I find and use methods and techniques that work for me.
I mark with a Clover Chaco Liner pen and it rubs off a little as I stitch
but it last long enough for me to stitch and it is not permanent.
I actually put as few marks as possible.

Trying Something New ~ Stitching In Hand from Life in the Scrapatch


"Stitching in hand"

I learned this method from
Kimberly Jolly @ Fat Quarter Shop Flosstube
which I watch every week
whether I am actively working on a cross stitch project or not.

I put this away during the warm weather and growing season.
It is ...
