I am new to Sashiko and Claudia suggested this kit. It came very nicely packaged and wrapped with several extras too. I am anxious to begin and will certainly be back for more guidance!
I purchased the white, and it was so much fun to stitch. You can see through the fabric, but I don't mind that. I am thinking of lining it with a navy before I finish it into a pillow.
Loved doing this and it turned out great. I turned it into a small pillow as I used the extra fabric for the back of the pillow. I backed the embroidery will navy blue felt which gave it good body for the pillow. I am pleased!
Excellent! I've bought from you several times and the products are always as stated. Good shipping time as well.
This looks great and I'm looking forward to trying this.
