Sashiko Sampler - Shippo-tsunagi (Linked Seven Treasures)
Adding sashiko to my embroidery game opened up a whole new world of pattern and texture. This traditional Japanese pattern called Linked Seven Treasures, is a maze of interlocking flowers and is a real beauty stitched up.
The pattern is pre-printed on 100% cotton. The lines of the pattern wash away once stitching is complete, so don't pre-wash the sampler! Use the finished piece as a tea towel, handkerchief, or decorative wall hanging.
You'll need also need two skeins of sashiko thread and a sashiko needle, or find a complete kit here.
