Sashiko embroidery and Pretty {Little} Pouch Swap

Sashiko embroidery is a very old form of hand sewing that only uses simple running stitch. I came across this tutorial a while ago and I absolutely loved the way it looked.

I decided to combine this traditional Japanese technique of embroidery with some modern fabric and linen to make a pouch for my partner for Pretty Little Pouch Swap 3.

I like how it looks, hopefully my partner will, too. I also did a few lines of straight running stitches on the back of the pouch.

So, as it turns out, old and new do mix together well. I'm pretty sure I'll be using Sashiko embroidery in my other projects again.

Have a wonderful day, Svetlana.
