Requiring no special equipment other than a sewing needle and thread, "Make & Mend" introduces the incredibly simple technique of Sashiko--a striking hand-sewing method using a running stitch to form pleasing geometric patterns. Sashiko is traditionally used to mend and repair clothing and textiles, but it can just as easily be used to create beautiful, decorative projects for the home. With 15 projects applying a modern, on-trend aesthetic to this ancient craft, "Make & Mend" shows readers how to apply Sashiko stitching to a variety of craft projects, such as repairing torn jeans, decorating a shower curtain, mending a ripped hem, and making a simple pet bed, throw pillows, napkins, a tablecloth, and a tote bag. Touching on the concepts of beauty in minimalism and resourceful simplicity, as well as a fascination with Japan and Japanese design, this easy and accessible book appeals to both the seasoned maker and total beginner.
