Tulip Sashiko Sewing Kit, Hungary - Tulips & Birds

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. 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. 

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. 



Kit includes; Tulip Sashiko needle, Sashiko thread, pre-printed natural cotton cloth and instruction sheet. *Please note the cloth fabric is a lighter colour than displayed on the second image (the first image reflects the true colour accurately.)
