The best and most convenient guide to the Japanese embroidery style of sashiko and boro stitching you’ll ever own, this handy pocket guide will help you fully understand these two timeless sewing techniques and how to perfectly execute them. While both are stitching techniques native to Japan, sashiko produces even white stiches on dark fabric that are often worked into repeating designs, and boro incorporates patches into garments which are hand-sewn in linear fashion. Featuring helpful overviews on the history of boro and sashiko stitching, also included are detailed sections on tools, marking tips, and a variety of simple designs. With seven simple projects that contain easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions and coordinating photography, you’ll fall in love with this unique stitching style!
