Kantan Sashiko

I found this book at Mariya in Sapporo.  The title Kantan Sashiko caught my attention.  Kantan means easy.  I also bought a meter of the indigo sashiko fabric.  The book is in Japanese and back to front, but there are good diagrams, so maybe it really is Kantan.

As soon as I get started on one of these easy projects, I’ll post pictures.


  1. WHOA. Looks complicated….can hardly wait to see them!

  2. I am sure the projects are 'kantan' and as the book probably have so many illustrations and measurements that you can understand, it will be 'kantan'. Usually the result is striking with white thread on dark blue fabric. Enjoy!

  3. Looks very intrigueing - way above my basic level :D Can't wait to see what you do with it!
