Imagine having an idea of a project but you don't find the right design to fit it.

Or you get struck by inspiration for a design, but you don't know how to actually realise it (FRUSTRATING!).

This practical mini course is FOR YOU!

How to create your own Sashiko patterns gives you practical and concrete demonstrations and examples of how you can turn ANYTHING into a Sashiko pattern.

As long as you follow the 6 steps outlined in the theory section, you are able to turn anything from a regular object to an imaginative idea into a beautiful and unique Sashiko pattern.

The course also includes:

✅ 9 videos of concrete examples to give you practical confidence about the process of making patterns

✅ Downloadable PDF including ALL patterns and templates used as example (+ 3 DIY mini project ideas)

SKILLS FOR A LIFETIME that can be applied to any projects such as Visible Mending, Unique artworks and more!

Oh, don't sweat the drawing process!

You don't have to know how to draw to be able to successfully create Sashiko patterns.
It's completely up to you of what type of designs you want to create and as such also which tools you choose to use to your advantage.

For added clarity:

This is not a regular embroidery course.

Rather it's a specified course on the pattern creation process.

To know how to create your own patterns will be hugely helpful if you aim to venture into Visible mending and/or graphical artwork creation.

It can also lay the foundation for a future exploration of selling your own patterns.

If you are completely new to the Sashiko embroidery technique we recommend that you also have a look at the complete Introduction to Sashiko embroidery course as an embroidery complement.

I am a complete beginner of Sashiko can I still take this course?
