May 17/19. In an effort to get caught up with 'behind the scenes' work, from May 24 to 28 I will be not be picking up emails. Orders made during that time will be mailed out May 29th. Thank you for your understanding :-) Susan
This is a downloadable pattern. After you complete your order you will receive a download link which you can save to your computer and print. If you don't receive the download link within half an hour please e-mail and let me know, thanks.
The download will contain the full size pattern (7 1/2" diameter), instructions for how to transfer the design to your fabric, and instructions for how to do sashiko stitching, and directions for making it into a mat. This would be a nice design floated on a larger fabric project.
Suggested materials for making a small mat from this design are available on this site. Look in the sashiko supplies section.
10 inch square of fabric, preferably cotton or linen, for stitching
10 inch square of white fusible featherweight non woven interfacing or
sewing transfer paper - to use follow directions on the package
Olympus sashiko thread
10 inch squares each of quilt batting and backing fabric
