Please select all options.
11 cm (4 inch) square hard acrylic stencil with .5mm spacing between the holes, comes with an iron away marker. This is a good quality acrylic that will not easily be broken.
This classic sashiko graph acrylic stencil lets you put you own sashiko or hitomesashi sashiko design almost anywhere. Simply use the iron away pen that comes with the stencil to mark you fabric with evenly spaced dots, remove the stencil and use the pen to draw the stitching design lines. Then stitch, iron the area to remove the markings, and you're done.
Using a grid stencil allows you to easily draw out the sashiko designs you see in books. You can make any sashiko design that is based on a horizontal and vertical design with this stencil.
Great for adding visible mending stitching on clothing.
Tip: To make a better mark through the stencil holes insert the pen tip into a hole and while keeping it on the fabric roll the pen between your fingers. See the little video in the photographs shown here.
Note: This stencil comes with an iron away pen in either white for dark fabrics or black for white and light coloured fabrics. Choose pen colour when placing your order. More of these pens are available on this website. They are called "Low waste iron away pens" because they have no outer plastic barrel.
Two other variations of this stencil are also available on this website: .5mm and diagonal grid with 1cm spacing.
