Sashiko is a traditional form of Japanese embroidery that uses basic running stitches to create a pattern. This design was inspired by traditional Russian folk nesting dolls called Matryoshka. The kit comes with everything you need to get stitching, so it's a great choice for those who are new to Sashiko.
The design is pre-printed on an unbleached cotton panel. The kit comes with a premium Tulip sashiko needle and several colors of thread. English instructions are also included.
At just over 13 inches square, the cloth can be used as a dishcloth, finished as a pillow or tote, or combined with other panels as part of a larger project.
