Sashiko is a form of Japanese folk embroidery using running stitch to create patterned blocks. Sashiko itself directly translates to ‘little stabs’. This kit contains everything you need to get started and give it a go. The kit contains enough fabric to create a 40cm x 40cm standard cushion – you can use the templates to make your own Sashiko sampler.
The finished piece should be washed by hand or on a gentle machine wash, drip dried, and ironed on a cool setting.
