Learn how to make Sashiko Coasters with this step-by-step tutorial. You can use any Sashiko stitches to make these coasters – perfect for trying out different stitches that you might want to include on bigger projects!
We’ve used the basic Jujizashi Sashiko stitch, the persimmon flower stitch and a basic Sashiko star stitch for our set of four coasters.
This is a super easy project, perfect for when you are looking for a small hand stitching project while watching TV, or to take on the road with you. You start by stitching out your Sashiko blocks first, and then sewing them to a backing to make a coaster.
