I love this; a functional marriage between the fragility of these crocheted leaves and the darning of these jumpers. The message being that old things can be treasured, worn things aren’t bad and that imagination is precious. These are all examples of Sashiko, a form of decorative reinforcement stitching from Japan, (though it also reminds me of Indian Kantha quilts). Every piece has been given some much needed love, transformed and given new life.

It’s the sort of message I like for the start of a decade.

🙂 What a great idea! It looks really pretty.
I’ll keep that in mind next time my little niece wrecks another pair of jeans.
Have a HAPPY day!
Thank you Claudia – happiness to you too! xxx
