Sashiko Squares

Dear Chicago House,

I have been dabbling with a needle, white thread and blue fabric …. look at the loveliness that has resulted!

This type of embroidery is called Sashiko and is a form of decorative reinforcement that originates from Japan.I first came across it on Pinterest where there are loads of patterns …it was all I needed to get going with my own ideas.

I am not sure what I am going to to with these 4″ squares yet, but they are very relaxing to make!

  1. I just saw these, thanks for the beautiful inspiration! I’ve recently taken up stitching and just did four coasters out of my Shashiko Boho Inspired versions. What did you end up doing with those?

  2. I just love the 4 squares. Can I buy it? It´s for a white dress which needs pepping up:)))
    How much would it cost, the size & can you post it international to Germany?
    Thankying you in advance

      1. The Squares are very lovely indeed!! Did you use batting, flannel, or something else as filling? I’d like to try this method to make Christmas gifts…
