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!

This sampler was fun and easy to follow. Clear instructions tell you what direction to stitch, and the pattern is very easy to see on the sampler. It washed away perfectly, after soaking in water. I bought this sampler with the intention to turn it into a handbag (see image). I used 1 sampler, cut in half, for the main body. I loved stitching it up!
