Capture the essence of Japanese style in your sewing with this collection of projects inspired by the wabi-sabi concept of 'perfect imperfection'. This collection of 20 sewing projects for home decor and accessories is based on the popular Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi which celebrates the beauty in the ordinary and imperfect.
The projects are grouped according to how we live, for example: living; sleeping; eating and exploring. Sewing and quilting expert and fabric designer, Karen Lewis, has used a limited palette of earthy tones and the best quality natural fabrics including linen, cotton, denim and wool to create a stunning collection of simple, sewn projects.
Try out some simple wabi-sabi style sewing techniques such as hand hand piecing, sashiko embroidery, big stitch quilting, and visible mending to create unique items for your home whether it's a full sized bed quilt, simple coasters for your favourite mug or a stunning scarf to wrap up in.
