Happy Holiday Season, and happy shopping! The "in time for Christmas" question... I can't be certain for you, although if you are in BC or Alberta you chances are good until about the 15th. For everyone else, if you want it for Christmas please choose a tracked shipping option.
This pattern contains the sashiko stitching pattern in the photo with the sashiko star. The second photo is just a sample of what happens if you just do your own thing while stitching :-)
Look in sashiko supplies in the side bar for sashiko materials. You will need transfer material, sashiko thread and sashiko needles. And fabric of course.
