i was reading this blog last night about embroidery and wanted to start a sashiko project. it's a form of traditional japanese embroidery used as reinforcement on clothing, but also as decoration. it's super easy and the white thread on navy is so simple, yet elegant. most of the patterns are geometric and kind of trippy. so i was getting all psyched about that last night and then found a pattern book at the valencia community thrift store today! whadduya know! here are some examples of what i'd like to work on....

the dog coat! always a favorite

and as hip as it gets, a sashiko messenger bag! made especially for lance armstrong!

damn japanese have done it again!
