Sashiko is a type of traditional Japanese embroidery. It started out as a way to strengthen cotton and linen fabrics, but these days, we enjoy its repetitive patterns for decoration. Once you get started, sashiko embroidery is a really calming and relaxing activity.
For the embroidered panel:
- 55cm x 55cm (22″ x 22″) of dark natural fabric (eg. linen, hemp, organic cotton)
- Contrasting embroidery thread and needle
To complete the pillow:
- 55cm x 55cm (22″ x 22″) of fabric for the back of the cushion (I used a gingham check fabric for contrast)
- 45cm (17.5″) Zipper
