This sashiko sampler contains one navy coloured cloth that is pre-printed with two cranes. The pattern washes out of the cloth with water. This is a perfect project for beginner sashiko artists. I find that these samplers are also wonderful for travelling with as they are small and do not require you to pack a large amount of supplies. The marks are also easily seen (for less than perfect lighting) and will not rub off when the cloth is folded away. The design can be embroidered with one 20 meter skein of sashiko thread.
