Have fun making a sampler cloth and learn how quick, easy and addictive hitomezashi (one stitch) traditional Japanese patterns are to do.
Hitomezashi is stitched vertically and horizontally across the cloth and then diagonally following the stencilled lines on the muslin.
These distinctive sashiko samplers have been stencilled using traditional designs.
Following the lines of the printed design, stitches of sashiko thread define the image.
The cloth is then washed to reveal the design clear of the stencilled lines.
