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.
