Sashiko Placemat Kit - Navy #971-1851
- Beginner Skill level
- 17" x 13"
This kit featuring a geometric patterned placemat will get you stitching in this Japanese style quilting technique called Sashiko. The placemat will measure 17" x 13" when finished. The kit includes a very dark navy blue (almost black) 100% cotton fabric that is pre-printed, white Sashiko embroidery thread (much like embroidery floss), needle, special leather Sashiko thimble, and stitching diagrams and pattern. Although there are no English instructions, the diagrams are well-illustrated and easy to interpret. Modern Sashiko combines the simple elegance of traditional Japanese sashiko with modern surface designs and materials.
