Sashiko is a style of Japanese stitching that utilizes a simple running stitch to create gorgeous geometric patterns.
To create a sashiko project traditionally, the crafter would first need to meticulously map out a uniform grid atop their fabric, mark corresponding points in the design with white pencil, and then carefully measure out each stitch as they sewed. It's an art form that takes practice, patience, and lots of thoughtful time.
We created our Sashiko Hot Iron Transfers because we absolutely adore geometric patterns but wanted to skip all the precision steps and get straight to the stitching!
Just like other hot iron transfers, the process of stamping the design onto fabric is quick and easy...and best of all: IT WASHES OUT! All you need are some pins, a hot iron set on the dry setting, and light colored, loosely woven cotton fabric to stamp on! Once you've stamped your design, you'll be able to clearly see where to stitch and quickly fall into your own sashiko rhythm. It's super relaxing, meditative, and fun to see your pattern quickly take shape!
This is what comes in a each hot iron transfer pack:
