There’s a craftperson whom I follow on Instagram who has gotten me really interested in Sashiko-style visible mending. Her name is Katrina Rodabaugh, and her blog and IG feed are a treat for your eyes. http://www.katrinarodabaugh.com/ and https://www.instagram.com/katrinarodabaugh/?hl=en
Tired of my growing pile of things to be mended, I finally gave visible/Sashiko mending it a try!
Here are some of my and the Wee Boy’s jeans, in various stages of mending (he and I wear our clothes the hardest of the four of us!). I drew straight-ish lines with a water soluble marker so my lines wouldn’t be too terrible.
Anyway, I’m glad I finally gave this technique a try. I think it’s going to be more successful than the weak iron-on patches I’ve used before!
Do you have experience with visible mending or sashiko stitching?
