This beautiful book of Hitomezazhi designs and projects is published by Olympus in Japan and it is in Japanese only (no English). If you are comfortable already with Hitomezashi stitching this won't matter, you can follow the photographs and drawings to learn and stitch many new designs.
The book includes a number of Hitomezashi designs I have not seen before, and some interesting ways to combine them, as well as projects for using your stitched fabric.
I've packaged the book with a pack of 20 colours (10 meters each) of the new thin Sashiko thread from Olympus, a package of 4 Sashiko needles (4 in 4 lengths) a leather Sashiko thimble, and a 12" cotton fabric which has been pre-printed with a wash out dotted graph. The fabric will let you start stitching a hitomezashi design immediately as Hitomezazhi designs are based on single stitches on a grid.

Note: The multi design on the book cover is stitched on the same cotton fabric included in the kit.
