2013 Hishizashi Project No 5

This month I have designed a simple project using linen as my base fabric.  For once I think the linen looks better than the hemp and the soft Kogin cotton looks right against the natural colour of the linen.  An optional finish to the edge is 'Portugese Border Stitch' which I stitched using a two thread distance between each of the base bars.

I did stitch out a version in hemp but I am going to have to experiment a bit more with stitching on this beige colour.  (It looks a bit like plastic at the moment.)


 Again I have broken up the instructions for ease of downloading
