Sashiko means "little stabs" and 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!
Pre-printed Sashiko samplers are make it easy to get started. Simply follow the stitch marks with a Sashiko running stitch and watch the pattern emerge. Samplers are printed using wash-away ink, which allows you to wash the sampler in cool water upon completion to wash away any stray markings not covered by your stitching.

the packaging is very thoughtful, fabric is a bit too thin for sashiko
This was my first Sashiko project. It was fun and easy to complete - would recommend for other beginners.
