April 25/19. NEW SASHIKO THREADS!! Very interesting new variegated skeins, and at long last new colours in the 100 meter skeins! Happy stitching :-) Susan
A wonderful new addition to sashiko preprinted fabrics. This are Susan Briscoe designed fabric panels printed with traditional sashiko patterns on Olympus Tsumugi cotton fabrics.
Choose: Light Blue (the color my jacket, I'd call it soft blue/gray), Dark Green (the background fabric), or Gray (the fabric at the front - it is a metallic yellow/gray) when ordering.
Each panel is 24" x 42.5" and has eight 4 1/2" motif blocks plus eight 9" blocks with a 3/8" seam allowance making them perfect for cutting into individual blocks for sewing into quilts, table covers, clothing, bags, or wherever your imagination takes you! The print will wash away cleanly after your stitching is finished. Colorfast and washable with no significant shrinkage.
Notes: The photographs here show all 6 colors this sashiko panel is available in, and the matching bolts of plain Tsumugi fabrics. I've included a photograph of my hippari coat to show how this fabric drapes. You can find the plain fabrics and the hippari pattern on this site.
