Sashiko has become super popular recently and these samplers are a great way to try out this traditional Japanese form of embroidery. This 100% cotton sampler has pre-printed lines to show you where to stitch. The instructions are in Japanese but there are diagrams and the technique is really simple.

The pattern is printed on one half of the fabric - the other half can be used to turn your sampler into a cushion.

Please note, the stitch lines can be removed by hand washing. Do not iron the lines before you have stitched the sampler as this fixes the lines and makes them permanent!

To complete your sampler you will need sashiko thread and sashiko needles, although you could use DMC Perle cotton and embroidery needles too.
