Simply Sashiko: Classic Japanese Embroidery Made Easy

By Nihon Vogue


This book provides lessons on the ins and outs (literally) of making 36 elegant sashiko patterns. It shows you how to make stylish home and personal accessories you will love, including:

  • Decorative pouches that make excellent gifts
  • Placemats and napkins your guests will appreciate
  • Delicate purses that all your friends will want to have
  • Beautiful covered brooches and buttons
  • And much more!

Step-by-step instructions and detailed colour photos guide you through each process — from transferring the patterns to perfecting your stitch techniques. User-friendly templates help keep your motifs balanced and even — while the elegant colour combinations inspire you to get creative with these simple and versatile stitches.

Only four materials are needed — needle, thread, thimble and fabric. Sashiko stitches have long been a favourite for quilting and embroidery. Today, the style is popular in the visible mending movement because of its simplicity and aesthetic appeal. With Simply Sashiko, you can apply centuries old Japanese techniques to your clothing and accessories in a fun and creative way.
