The Japanese word sashiko means little stabs – which may sound violent – but this craft is totally about chilling out and stitching along the lines. The little stabs actually refers to the small stitches used in this form of needlework.
It’s super clever too! When you’ve chosen your pattern you’ll see how the stitches form a genius little pattern on your fabric. This is really the ideal craft for anyone who loves following a pattern and prides themselves on keeping stitches neat and tidy, it’s also very simple for all those stitch starters out there (aka beginners, that’s what we call them on the mean streets of Hackney Downs Studios, with a flat white in one hand and an embroidery needle in the other).
A very relaxed and beautiful craft that will have you feeling like you’re sipping a green tea next to Fuji San and being delicately showered in cherry blossom. Kawaii.
Choose from a selection of 8 different designs. Each kit contains a pre printed Japanese cloth that is 80% cotton and 20% linen. A sashiko needle and 20m of sashiko 100% cotton thread – enough to finish the piece of cloth. Your finished piece will be Approximately 30cm x 30cm.
