Making Sashiko ornaments is a great way to see what the slow-stitch movement is all about. It’s slow stitch, to be sure, but the projects are so small you can complete them in short order.
If you love it, you can take on more and/or larger slow-stitch projects. But if it’s not your thing, you will still have pretty ornaments to decorate your own home or to give as sweet gifts.
If you are new to Sashiko, check out our Step-by-Step Guide to Sashiko Stitching or if you are looking for a comprehensive reference try The Ultimate Sashiko Sourcebook by Susan Briscoe. You’ll be ready to tackle these ornaments and much more!
