Introducing Baby Lock’s newest “Sassy Girl” -- the Sashiko machine! This machine sews a perfect little “hand stitch” just like the stitch found on traditional Japanese sashiko stitched projects or your grandmother’s antique quilts. As you can see by the photos in the Sashiko Projects Category, this simple stitch can create stunning embellishments! Baby Lock: Sashiko

This was a fun project even though I picked a fabric that
probably shouldn't be used for machine Sashiko stitching! I
loved the silk mesh fabric and really wanted a vest with it.
It wasn't suitable really for embroidery either - what to do?
Well, applying appliques and THEN Sashiko stitching them
worked! The cotton fabric became the stabilizer and the
machine did a wonderful job. I used only the sweet simple
stitch for this vest, no fancy pleats, ruffles or
flipstitching. I wanted that beautiful stitch to shine! The
applique designs are from my Garden Motifs tutorial book/CD.
