This mid weight 100% cotton twill from Olympus is still my favourite of all the available sashiko ready to stitch preprinted 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, is colourfast, and keeps its body.
Order it in 1/2 meter increments ( 2 units will be 1 meter, 3 units will be 1 1/2" meters, 4 units will be 2 meters and so on) The fabric is 42" wide. Your order will be sent to you in one continuous piece.
NOTE: Please don't get the fabric damp before you have finished stitching, and do not iron it before washing either, it will set the print.
The print washes away entirely after your stitching is completed, so you can choose to leave areas unstitched to increase your design options. This print lends itself to many variations. Try stitching the some lines in a second colour. Try leaving some lines unstitched and washing them out later.
Choose dark navy colour or of-white cream colour when placing your order.
Choose size when placing order.
