Sashiko Key Ring Making with Yiran
Fun and relaxing Sashiko Kogin workshop to make your own leather keyring, a perfect gift for you or someone you know.
Sashiko stitching: ashiko designs, even those with curvy elements, are often based on a simple grid. Accomplished stitchers can draw just a grid on the fabric and fill in the design by eye, simply stitching from corner to corner. Most of us, however, need a pattern.
