Hitomezashi is one of the styles of Sashiko, a Japanese form of hand embroidery. Hitomezashi means "one stitch" and this family of designs is stitched on a grid to form intricate and dense patterns. Hitomezashi samplers provide hours of meditative stitching practice that result in a beautiful hana-fukin (kitchen cloth) that can be used for years or incorporated into other projects such as bags, quilts, table runners and more. 

Olympus brand Sashiko Samplers are printed on 100% cotton Sashiko fabric (Sashiko Momen) using wash-away ink. Simply follow the stitch lines by stitching all the horizontal lines first, then the verticals and finally the diagonals and watch your complete pattern emerge as you stitch. Once you have finished stitching, simply rinse the sampler in water to wash away any stray markings.

Fishy Fast & Fun

These samplers are fun to stitch, you can really get in the zone and let go, and it's satisfying to play with colors and different types of thread, including perle 8. My dad works on salmon and steelhead conservation and I knew I wanted to make this for his 80th birthday. I stitched it in the colors of the local redband trout. I'd like to do more to finish the edges, but he was really into this b'day gift, and it was a great beginner project for me.

Soothing stitching

I enjoy doing these sashiko samplers, both as easily portable on-the-go time fillers and in the evening to wind down from a busy day. I look forward to using the variegated blue thread on this one!

Ready, set, stitch!
