It’s always fun to experiment with new embroidery stitches and Sashiko is definitely one for your customers to try if they haven’t already! Sashiko is a running stitch technique, traditionally used in Japan, and there could be no better place to begin than with the Sew Easy Sashiko starter kit from Sew Easy.
Containing all the materials needed for creating a 40cm x 40cm standard cushion cover, the kit includes cotton fabric in dark blue measuring 1.42m x 50cm, 4 assorted pattern templates (each measuring approx. 4ins), and a 40m skein of pure cotton embroidery thread in white. There’s also a fabric pencil and a pack of embroidery needles – all you need is the cushion pad!
The finished cushion looks stunning in classic navy and white and it can be dry cleaned, hand-washed or put in a gentle machine wash cycle. It should then be drip dried and pressed with a cool iron. The kit retails at £39.99.
Sew Easy has a vast range of innovative durable quilting products at affordable prices.
