Sashiko Shirt Cushions

Sashiko is a type of Japanese embroidery, which I really like and
 have some previously stitched projects.
I knew I had 2 finished sashiko pieces, the right size for cushion
covers, and  I knew they
 would be a great gift , for friends who have birthdays on the same day.
I used old shirts for backing and made patchwork borders.
Now I have two finished projects, and two  home made presents.
You can read about the Sashiko embroideries here:
