Sashiko Patch Mending for the Nick Cave Lover
We found an awesome vintage Levi's jacket that had seen better days. The back had many holes and there were some dark oil looking stains. The denim around the holes was in great condition making this the perfect style for some denim sashiko mending.
For this project I chose to use some denim scraps and a patch drawn by our friend Fos that says "Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds". I used Olympus Sashiko thread and needles (made in Japan and available in the store).
First thing I did was trim the loose threads from the holes. And then using my thread and needle I did rows of stitching for a basic Sashiko. The finished product covers all holes and stains.
Jacket is still available here.
