TAST 2012, Week 10 - Running Stitch

This is the trial of my running stitch.  I have used pattern darning here.
Have a look.

Now comes a simple pattern using running stitch.  I have started to work this on a plain pillow cover.  I came to know about this type of pattern while surfing the net and it comes under Sashiko embroidery i.e) embroidering geometrical patterns using only running stitch.  The results were very pleasing.  I have given a try.  I have designed my pattern using a graph paper and then transferred it through carbon to the fabric.  Have a look at it.

This is the drawn pattern in the graph.

  1. Thanks for sharing your samples and the pattern.

  2. Nice pattern and I just love your running stitches..

  3. Shami, this looks amazing! I love sashiko too, although I haven't tried graphing it out yet.


I would like to hear from you as it boosts me up a lot.
