You might be wondering where the name Sew-Ichigo came from, I'll explain. We had a few brainstorming sessions on names and one of the things we settled on was a Japanese word. We are both influenced by Japanese designers like Suzuko Koseki and Kumiko Fujita and our friendship with Ayumi played a part too I suspect! We discovered that "ichigo" was Japanese for "strawberry"
And a strawberry linked nicely with berry in verykerryberry. We needed our new name to reflect what is was about- Sew- and of course this echoed Penny's blog Sewtakeahike!
So there you have it! A little etymology of how Sew-Ichigo got its name. I edited these fabric pic in Picmonkey- a great free photo editing site to replace picnic!
And a little preview- our patterns will have little tick mark/lines to help match pieces/sections and help you to piece as accurately as possible. I will write a little tutorial with photos to show what they look like and how to use them, hopefully up by weekend x
