Sashiko leaf is a sample from a while back when I wanted to test stitching on a loosely woven antique bast fiber from Japan. Result: not so easy to control over large area with such open weave. The bauble is handmade by me (plus an earring) when I thought I could make a necklace out of these “beads” by rolling scraps. Decided against that, too. Ya gotta try things, right?
