Another quick sample of sashiko

This design is usually supposed to evoke fish scales or ocean waves. I decided to try out a two colour combination for this one. I feel like I am getting the hang of the stitching technique now. This is about 16cm square and it took just a touch over two hours last night.


  1. I really like it - it seems like it would be really pretty on the hem of a sleeve or skirt.

    1. Yes, I really like the idea of a simple pattern on a hem band of a skirt in particular.

  2. I like this pattern for trim-your idea of using it on a skirt will be terrific.
