Look at the simple, elegant embroidery on this linen kitchen towel. It’s called sashiko embroidery.
This form of Japanese embroidery uses “a form of running stitches to create beautiful patterns, which often repeat or create a tiled effect.” Read more, get free patterns, and see the step-by-step tutorial at About Needlecrafts.
As always, if you make this, please share a photo of your completed project! Happy stitching! 🙂
Summer is nearly here–hooray!–and you might be looking for some new cross-stitch patterns to brighten up your little corner of the world.
How gorgeous is this? The best part? It’s one of a set of three from Cross Stitch Pattern.net. This link will take you to the pattern shown at right. Here are her sisters: Mermaid One and Mermaid Three. The next best part? They’re all f*r*e*e*!
Happy Stitching! And Happy Summer! 🙂
I’ve been thinking about how nice it is to have someone who is always willing to listen. It doesn’t matter if you’re happy or sad or mad or glad, if you have something to share, they’ll be there. Do you have someone like that in your life? I hope you do. 🙂
To help you celebrate that person, I’ve created a new cross-stitch pattern for you. It’s also available on my embroidery patterns page.
