Summary
"Requiring no special equipment other than a sewing needle and thread, Make + Mend introduces the incredibly simple technique of sashiko--a striking Japanese hand-sewing method using a running stitch to form pleasing geometric patterns. Sashiko is traditionally used to mend and repair clothing and textiles, but it can just as easily be used to create beautiful, decorative projects for the home. With fifteen projects applying a modern, on-trend aesthetic to this ancient craft, Make + Mend shows you how to apply sashiko stitching to a variety of projects, such as repairing torn jeans, mending a ripped hem, and making a totebag or a patterned scarf. Whether you're a seasoned maker or a total beginner, this easy and accessible book is the perfect entrée to Japanese folk embroidery."--Page [2] of cover
