Simply thread your sashiko needle with sashiko thread and stitch the dashed lines to make this mother whale and her calf. No need to transfer the design yourself. After your stitching is finished soak and wash the printed design away.
There are 12 designs in this Sea Life series by Sylvia Pippen. Make one for a cushion, or use it on a bag front. Stitch a few and make a wall hanging, or a few more and make a handsome quilt top.
Finished blocks in this series are 16" x 16". This kit contains the pre printed fabric. You will also need a sashiko needle and sashiko thread. Please do not iron before stitching, heat will set the preprint.
These blocks make excellent travel projects as all you need is a needle and thread. The design won't rub off during stitching so you can squash it into a bag in your purse for the next time you are stuck waiting somewhere.
Infrequently sent projects and creative encouragements, new product photos and occasional sales.
