This oblique grid is made to use with hitomezashi sashiko designs, but is also suitable for drawing out other sashiko designs that involve diagonal or curved lines. Use an wash away fabric marker to draw you design. The dots and your marks will wash away when you are finished stitching.
The cotton cloth in this package is 13 1/2" X 25 1/2", the printed area for stitching is 12" X 12". You are meant to fold the unprinted side over the back of the printed side and stitch through both layers for a more traditional sashiko look. There are some english directions included.
Any of the sashiko needles and threads will be suitable for this fabric.
Infrequently sent projects and creative encouragements, new product photos and occasional sales.
