Curiosity got the better of you?
In April, with materials including these –
This is what we’ll be making…
It’s sashiko! This beautiful Japanese folk textile embroidery form translates as ‘little stabs’ and was traditionally used as a form of darning, or quilting stitch to build up warmth in winter clothing.
A little different to Western embroidery, the needle is much longer and loaded with multiple stitches to get these structured geometric lines.
The kit includes the full template, step by step instructions and enough fabric to make two placemats – or tweak the design to make a bag, book cover or small cushion cover.
We normally source our kits in the UK, but for this one, we’ve imported the authentic materials from Japan, with lovely open weave indigo fabric, sashiko thread and needles.
Numbers are limited on this kit, so jump in if you’d like to make it! Orders will close at the end of the month, or when we run out – whichever is sooner.

Here’s what folk have said about us…
I couldn’t be happier with the February Craftiosity box as it was such a fun project, I have a great end product and the tools to use again. I think it’s a fantastic and unique subscription box that I know will be a hit with so many people! 9.2/10Heather
It was such a treat! The kit came beautifully packaged, I was little daunted when I saw the instructions for stitching the book together but it was actually really well explained and if I’d got stuck I could have watched a video for extra help.Leigh
A lovely box was handed to me by my postie (it’s too large to fit through the letterbox) which got me really excited. There’s something lovely about creating with your hands and I enjoyed sitting and making the pots.Jenny
