Described as "Sashiko-inspired embroidery projects to customise and repair textiles and decorate your home" this book Make + Mend by Jessica Marquez is one of my favourite of the visible mending, sashiko and boro combination skills.
This is an attractive hardbound book, 6 1/2" x 7 1/4", 153 pages. Published by Watson Guptil, New York.
From the front cover "....With 15 projects applying modern, on-trend aesthetic to this ancient craft, Make and Mend shows you how to apply sashiko stitching to a variety of projects, such as repairing torn jeans, mending a ripped hem, making a tote bag or a patterned scarf. Whether you are a seasoned maker or a total beginner, this easy and accessible book is the perfect entree to Japanese folk embroidery."
8" X 7" nicely bound hardback published by Watson-Guptill. 135 pages.
