Create a unique Sashiko placemat for a one of a kind table setting. Sashiko is a Japanese style of hand embroidery. Beautifully intricate patterns are created with a simple running stitch using thick cotton Sashiko thread. Sashiko is great for beginning and advanced stitchers alike. Easy to learn and relaxing to do! The pre-printed stitch markings show you exactly where to stitch. Once you have finished stitching the design, simply hand wash the piece in cold water and the stitch markings will wash away.
