This gorgeous 16″ by 16″ sashiko cushion cover pattern from Alderspring Designs features the traditional Japanese motifs Plum Blossoms, Bamboo, and Pine Bark.
These three motifs are often found grouped together in Japanese arts and represent the overcoming of harsh Winter and coming of Spring. You could stitch them for a symbolic message of hope or the promise that good times will return after hard times, making for a wonderfully sentimental gift idea.
The pattern is printed full size on tracing tissue.
