Dark Green Sashiko Panel.
This ready to stitch sashiko panel, designed by Susan Briscoe, is printed on an earthy green Japanese tsumugi cotton fabric in wash away ink. You can just thread your sashiko needle with some sashiko thread and enjoy your stitching.
There are 8 traditional sashiko patterns, each 9" X 9" square. In addition there are eight 4 1/2" small sashiko designs. The individual blocks are marked with a cutting line and have a 3/8" seam allowance to make it easy to use them for quilts blocks, table covers, clothing, bags or other project. If you choose to use the panel as a whole cloth, wall hanging, or for cushions or small quilts, there is no need to stitch the cutting lines markings, they will completely wash away after your other stitching is finished.
This tsumugi fabric is washable and will not bleed, fade or shrink.
Ready to stitch preprinted sashiko patterns on tsumugi fabrics are available in several colours, in panels and smaller projects, and I have the matching plain tsumugi fabric also available. You can find the whole collection in the Special fabrics menu. Click on Tsumugi Fabric in the drop down menu. The tsumugi fabric colours are especially beautiful when combined in the same project.
This Tsumugi fabric is made for Olympus in Japan. It is a fine quality cotton version of the very expensive antique tsumugi silks of the past. The fabric is woven on a black warp with some soft slubby-ness. This creates the distinctive appearance of tsumugi cloth, and combined with the earthy tones of the weft thread colours, makes it similar in appearance to the original Japanese tsumugi cloth.
