Sashiko Panel #3, Indigo Navy #2008
Please select all options.
There are five different 6" round sashiko designs, plus nine 4" motifs preprinted in wash away ink on this ready to stitch indigo navy tsumugi fabric panel.
Full panel size is 24" x 44"
Simply thread a sashiko needle with a length of sashiko thread and enjoy your stitching!
Hang it as a panel, or cut the blocks apart and use them in other quilt, cushion, and sewing projects.
Do not iron before stitching as heat may set the printed markings. After stitching, soak and rinse in warm water. The markings will wash out completely.
Ready to stitch preprinted sashiko patterns on tsumugi fabrics are available in several colours, in panels and in smaller projects, and I have the matching plain tsumugi fabric also available. You can find the whole collection in the fabrics menu. Click on Tsumugi Fabric in the drop down menu. The tsumugi fabric colours are particularly beautiful when combined in the same project.
Uses & Care
Suitable for anywhere you would use a lightweight fabric such as quilting, clothing, wall hangings, curtains. I stitched the circles and grasses part of this panel for a wall hanging and used the small pieces to make coasters.
This fabric is colourfast, will not shrink, and can be machine washed and dried on gentle low heat cycles. It is best to remove it from the dryer while still a little damp. As with all cottons, over drying can damage the fibres.
This Olympus tsumugi cotton fabric is a dyed yarn shot cotton. Shot cotton fabrics are made by using two colours of yarn (thread), one for the warp, a second colour for the weft. These yarns are dyed before the fabric is woven resulting in a saturated colour and the distinctive slightly mottled appearance. The colours are muted and earthy tones.
