Sashiko Sampler "Pray"


( / )


This Hitome-sashi (single stitch) sashiko design looks complicated but is easy to stitch because like all the hitome-sashi designs it is done by simply stitching in straight lines across the design! Fist you stitch all the horizontal lines, then the vertical lines, then any diagonal lines.

  •  English directions are included.

Once you begin stitching these designs they are hard to resist! The stitching technique is so easy that it makes the a restful 'timeout' from stress, and the end results are  amazing for something that is so simple!

  • Finished Sampler Size: 12" X 12" (the white cotton fabric is 13" X 26". You are meant to fold the unprinted fabric behind the printed fabric and stitch through both layers.
  • Wash Out Design: when you have finished the stitching the design will wash out completely. Let it soak a short while in warm water, then rinse, towel dry and press from the back.
  • Amount of Thread: 60 meters of Sashiko thread will be enough. I suggest buying 3 skeins in two or three colours of the Olympus 20 meter skeins of sashiko thread.
  • Designed by Ayufish int. for Olympus in Japan, these are printed on the same sarashi-momen cotton fabric as the Olympus Sashiko samplers you are familiar with.
