Sewing Adventures: Sashiko Panels

By Susan | Comments: 2 | October 25, 2017

Having started doing Sashiko stitching earlier in the year, I find that I want to keep doing more. I picked up some pre printed panels from etsy and BeBe Bold.

Having them pre printed feels like cheating and then you realise just how wonderful it is to have them pre printed. It’s so easy and means you can just follow along. So simple and so enjoyable.

Perfect for when you feel like doing something but don’t actually have time or brain power to do anything complicated. I did plenty of these while I was just out of hospital.

So far I’ve just completed the stitching on the panels, I want to turn them into something useful but as yet haven’t decided what? Am slightly concerned that I should’ve stitched through both layers but couldn’t find out if that was I was meant to do or not? Suggestions welcome.

    I would think the second layer was meant to be unstitched used to cover the back side of your stitching. but I have only done 3 embroidered projects in my life! Lol!

      see that’s what I thought too but then I’ve seen some which are stitched all the way through and used as a cleaning cloth
