Olympus, Japan has designed this graphing fabric for you to use to transfer sashiko designs which aren't available as pre-printed designs. It is marked with tiny wash-away dots, 6 to an inch. Use a white or silver quilting pencil or fabric chalk pencil and a ruler to draw your design. This is a good way to get designs you see in sashiko books on to your own fabric.
Choose Colour when placing your order, navy or off white
Available in 1/2 meter increments. Your order will be sent in one continuous piece. Order 1 unit for 1/2 meter (19 1/2"), 2 units for 1 meter and so one. Fabric is 42" wide. Choose size when placing your order.
NOTE: Please don't get the fabric damp before you have finished stitching, and do not iron it before washing the print out as heat may set the markings.
This mid weight 100% cotton twill from Olympus is still my favourite of all the available sashiko ready to stitch pre-printed fabrics for making table linens, bags, or anything that will benefit from a fabric with a firmer hand. It is easy to pull your needle through, washes well and keeps its body.
