Smalls SAL fairy, Sashiko trial

Hello all

This month I have managed to do the smalls SAL for march month on time.   I took two evenings to stitch the fairy.  And added the quote "Be thankful" to it.  So on to the fairy.


Last two months fairy along with the borders.


All the eight fairies I have stitched so far.  I have to add the quotes to two of them.  Only four more to go to complete the piece.


There are many types of embroideries and one such embroidery is sashiko which uses only the simple running stitch.  I have tried it in a blue cotton fabric with white embroidery thread.  

Initially I didn't get the center of the flowers correct.  But on the go I got the hang of it and I completed this.  I traced the pattern on the wrong side of the fabric and done the running stitches on the wrong side.  But i made a mistake on the top row by starting the from the right side,  I should correct it.  

One close up

What should I do with this piece? No idea.  I will be doing one more pattern on sashiko.   That's all for now.  In my next post I will be coming up with the free pattern for this month.  

Till then, Have a happy time with needle n thread.

  1. All fairies look so lovely... Sashiko embroidery looks pretty... In fact I have been planning to try out few simple patterns like this one on my cushion covers but haven't had the chance... Need to try out soon... :)

  2. Charming fairies!
    Sashiko is simple, yet you need to pay attention to the length and evenness of the stitches. You have managed well.
