This grid is made to use with hitomezashi sashiko designs, but is also suitable for drawing out other sashiko designs. Use a wash away fabric marker to draw your design. The dots and your marks will wash away when you are finished stitching.
The cotton cloth in this package is 13 1/2" X 25 1/2", the printed area for stitching is 12" X 12". You are meant to fold the unprinted side over the back of the printed side and stitch through both layers for a more traditional sashiko look. There are english directions included.
Any of the sashiko needles and threads will be suitable for this fabric.
Open since 2005, but currently online only, A Threaded Needle is located in British Columbia, Canada. I am always happy to hear from you by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
