Sashiko evolved as a creative technique born from necessity in rural Japan. Today it is seeing a resurgence on an international scale, along with the Slow Stitch and Visible Mending movements. These fabric only kits come with two different 12"x12" designs on one 12"x24" piece of fabric. The printed designs are perfect for beginners, they can be used as a guide and will wash off with water once you are done stitching. Thread and needle not included.
