#SASHIKO158 pink sashiko coaster kit 'sakura' cherry blossoms
Arriving at the end of October - available for pre order now!
This kit makes five gorgeous sashiko coasters with sakura cherry blossom designs, perfect for a gift or just to keep for yourself! The sashiko designs are printed in grey on pink coloured narrow width traditional sarashi cloth (an easy to stitch traditional Japanese cotton cloth). The instructions are in Japanese but mainly pictorial, so they are easy to follow (you can also use the Google Translate smartphone app to 'read' the Japanese text). Just remember, measurements are all in centimetres, not inches.
Kit contains printed sashiko fabric, embroidery threads and a sashiko needle.
This kit coordinates with the pink sakura hanafukin sashiko sampler panel, and is the same shade of fabric as the other pink sashiko panels, 358, 389, 378 and 3033.
If you are also buying the hanafukin panel and the coaster kit, and want to coordinate your threads with the coasters, you can either match each of the six strand embroidery threads in the coaster kit to embroidery thread colours in your own stash once the kit arrives, or buy several 20m sashiko threads to stitch both the coaster kit and the hanafukin cloth.
Finished size for the stitched area is 10cm (4in approx) square, and the coasters are approx. 4 3/4in finished size.
Marks wash out.
