Sashiko love ♥ 外出先でちくちく刺し子♥

To squeeze in stitching time during my busy weekdays, lately I've been carrying this "Sashiko embroidery set" wherever I go. 


A pair of small scissors, pincushion and pins, sashiko threads, and sashiko fabric, are all placed in this handmade drawstring bag.


And I stitch in my parked car while I wait for our girls' schools, piano lessons, tutor classes, and other after school activities.


As you may know, Sashiko is a traditional Japanese stitching technique that originated to mend and reuse textiles when the fabrics were scarce.


These are Japanese soba noodle cups and chopsticks pre-printed on thin cotton fabric. 


 I got this pre-printed sashiko fabric and sashiko threads from Hobbyra Hobbyre, my favorite craft retail shop in Japan. 

印刷済み刺し子クロスは、大好きな日本の手芸専門店 ホビーラホビーレにて購入。

Sometimes I can make only few stitches, and other times I can stitch more.  Nevertheless, I am enjoying every stitch of the way :)

Happy sashiko stitching!


***Love, Amy***

Hi Amy! This is such a great idea! I am totally going to prep a project for me to do this with.

I adore your project pouches and that Sashiko pattern is lovely! I could stare at your photos all day.

Thanks for sharing where you purchased the pre-printed Sashiko project!
