My boom, Sashiko Hand Stitch
These days, I'm stitching with Sashiko cotton thread.
I put my favorite fabrics freely, and sew them together with Sashiko thread.
The works comes very rough taste. I like them very much.
So, to capitalize this taste, I made this bag. It seems not so strong, but it's really strong enough, because of the thick thread.
Japanese people use this thread for strengthen clothes, especially costumes for sports, like Kendo or Judo.
I want to make something new with this technique.
Oh, I love this Japanese girl's bag very much. She uses Sashiko thread and linen fabrics. The bags are really cute!
