Sashiko World sewing kit by Tulip. The kit includes everything you need to complete your decorative kitchen cloth or wall hanging, including a handy pre-printed cloth to follow for a very neat finish! The printing on the cloth can be removed with water after finishing the design.
The birds perched on the Tulips is influenced by Hungarian embroidered aprons. The birds facing each other are often used in wedding decoration as a symbol of love.
*Please note the cloth fabric is a lighter colour than displayed on the first image (see second image for true colour).
Sashiko is a traditional embroidery style from Japan. Originally used for repair and reinforements in clothing, now it is often used for decorative purposes. All Sashiko patterns are created with a basic running stitch, with the aim of keeping stitches as regular as possible so it is similar to hand quilting, however Sashiko designs are created on a single layer of fabric.
Contents: Tulip Sashiko needle, Sashiko thread, pre-printed natural cotton cloth and instruction sheet.
Finished size: 13.4" x 13.4" / 34cm x 34cm
