Make and Mend is an exquisite, full-colour guide to sashiko, a simple Japanese stitching technique that uses stunning patterns to decorate or repair clothing, accessories and home textiles - requiring
no special equipment other than a sewing needle and some thread!
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 and 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.
