This kit contains the pre-printed ready to stitch white cotton fabric, 4 skeins of Olympus sashiko thread, a package of Olympus sashiko needles and instructions which is everything you need to to stitch this sashiko and weaving sampler.
I like this process of weaving an additional thread under the stitched threads. It adds another layer of peaceful meditative movement to the process of sashiko stitching these useful small cloths. It also deepens the texture of the cloth so that as it is washed and dried it becomes increasingly interesting.
From Olympus, Japan, this is the same cotton fabric as the other Hana-Fukin cloths we carry. It makes a 12 x 12 inch finished cloth which you can add into other sewing projects or hem and use alone.
