Japan Crafts 20 Pattern Hitomezashi Sampler Kit
Our exclusive kit in collaboration with Olympus includes:
the new mini thread collection pack of fine sashiko threads - 20 different colours of 10m skeins
a 'hanafukin' sampler pre-printed with a grid of dots for stitching (approx. 33cm x 33cm)
full instructions (in English) to make this wonderful sampler featuring 20 different patterns.
Each pattern is stitched with a different coloured thread, using the grid of dots on the fabric as a guide. Once you've finished, give the sampler a wash and the dots will disappear, making it look as though you stitched it so neatly without any help!
The instructions are professionally printed to give you clear guidance as to where and how to stitch each pattern, as well as giving you a background in hitomezashi and help in getting started.
There is a choice of colours in the fabric - white, indigo, seafoam, red, mustard and lilac.
The pattern is also available (only in Japanese) as a downloadable QR code link on the back of the thread packs.
