Seven Cranes Sashiko Kit
Please select all options.
This ready to stitch sashiko image is from a Wood-bock Print "Mt.Fuji 36 Views" by Hokudasi Katsushika. It is called "Soushuu Umezawa-no-Hidari" or Seven Cranes.
This kit contains the threads you need to stitch it in the colours shown in the image, a sashiko needle, and the printed ready to stitch fabric. You can just open the package, thread your needle and start stitching :-)
Printed with wash out ink on white cotton fabric, the design is 12" x 12" but the fabric provided is 13" x 26". For a nicer and more traditional sashiko piece, fold the unprinted fabric to the back of the printed fabric and do the stitching through both layers.
Some translated English instruction are included, if you have done some hand stitching before they should be adequate :-) Short instructions are this: Thread your needle, stitch over the markings and when you have stitched all of the design, rinse the fabric to remove the printed markings. Dry and press. The markings will wash away entirely so please don't get the fabric damp before you are finished. Also, heat will set the markings so also do not iron the cloth before you have washed them out. Once finished you can add the block to a quilt, add a backing to make a cushion, or simply hem and enjoy it as it is :-)
