Sashiko Sampler "Ararekikko" (Full Kit)


( / )

This sashiko stitching sampler, Arare-kikko, is a relaxing stitching project with the same timeless and peaceful beauty we associate with other Japanese sashiko patterns. 

The cloth is printed with wash out ink. Keep it dry until you have finished stitching. After that, a short soak and rinse will remove the print entirely leaving your stitching clear and beautiful. (Do not iron until after washing, heat may set the ink.) 

It is one of a series of 6 of the Nagomi "Sashiko Flower Cloth" series which is designed referencing Japanese concepts of wellness, emotional balance, ease and calmness.  Many of us find Sashiko stitching calming and relaxing to do.

  • Suitable for intermediate sashiko stitchers
  • The designer says this Ararekkko kit, it "combines a turtle shell motif, which symbolises longevity, with colours reminiscent of the noble and beautiful bellflower that blooms around the rainy season."
  • Full kit includes white cotton fabric with Ararekikko pattern printed in wash out ink, 4 skeins of Sashiko thread, 1 Sashiko needle and   excellent step by step diagrams.
  • Additional English language instructions are included.  
  • Finished size is 12" X 12"
  • This sashiko cloth can be machine washed and dried after it is completed so it is suitable for use in sewing into other projects.
  •  Possible uses include framed sampler, cushion cover, quilt block, bags and so on. (See my blogs on this website for more ways to use them)
