When you are planning a sashiko style visible mending project, take some time to consider the garment. A mending project can take an afternoon or months of little by little mending. Either way, when the mending is finished, it is a different garment from the original, and to me, feels like a work of art.
I've been working on a handful of sashiko projects, and was feeling comfortable enough in my skill to branch out into a variation that has my contemporary style combined with more traditional sashiko style mending.
