For this project we're taking inspiration from Sashiko, a traditional Japanese embroidery style, distinctive for its striking geometric patterns.
It's is a form of Japanese folk embroidery using the basic running stitch to create a patterned background.
You're going to create a beautiful, modern Sashiko-inspired embroidered roll up pouch - perfect for travel or for storing your favourite craft items, stationary or make-up brushes at home.
If you've bought this project, you'll find your tutorial video below (the password is on the front of the printed instructions in your box!)
We've chosen a beautiful, natural oat coloured fabric for your pouch. We're also including a water-soluble marker pen and a floral geometric design template.
You can choose your favourite thread colour combination for your leaves and flowers as we're including a choice of 6 in beautiful shades of purples and pinks. We've chosen a pretty lilac and a contrasting dark purple for ours!
The striking Sashiko-inspired design will be displayed on the front of your stitched pouch. Once you've embroidered you'll transform it into a roll up pouch and add a pretty tie to finish!
We think it's perfect to enjoy creating during these beautiful summer months. It's a highly addictive process and we're sure you're going to love it!
