Sashiko 刺し子 literally means “little stabs,” and is easy to learn and fun to master. For more information and a how-to, check out my blog, http://sakepuppets.wordpress.com/sashiko/

This coaster and placemat kit is great for beginners or those wanting to try sashiko for the first time. Illustrated instructions guide you through the project step-by-step, and provide additional information via online tutorials and tips.

Unlike other sashiko kits where patterns are printed directly onto the fabric, these patterns are traced onto fabric using carbon paper. This process provides more freedom for design and allows you to reuse patterns, even combine patterns in other designs. Materials included in this kit are for 2 coasters and 1 placemat, but you'll be able to use the pattern and carbon paper again and again.

The patterns included in this kit are original Saké Puppets designs, inspired by traditional Japanese aesthetic with a modern twist. All materials included are of the highest quality, and fabrics have been pre-washed using all-natural detergents. Kits are assembled in my smoke-free, pet-free studio in the heart of Tokyo, Japan. This item will be shipped 1-2 days after receipt of payment via Japan Post airmail. Please see my Policies for more information.

Saké Puppets Sashiko Kits also make for lovely gifts -- present one to the crafter in your life, or stitch one up yourself and garnish it with a bow for a unique, handmade gift.
