Cushion Panel
Dot to Dot - persimmon stitch

This may look difficult but it isn't!

We think this is a chance to understand true sashiko, that is when the pattern emerges as the lines of stitching run forwards and backwards across the fabric.
A modern printed pattern may be easy but this is simple too as well as being very satisfying.

Fabric is printed with dots so your lines will reman straight.
