Sashiko Kit, Hemp Leaf Table Mat Kit
Please select all options.
Hemp Leaf Sashiko kit contains hand dyed indigo cotton fabric printed with iron away markings, matching backing fabric, and and a self adhesive filling layer.
The fabric in this kit is 100% cotton and has been hand dyed using indigo dye. Indigo is a plant that has been used in many countries dating back centuries. When you iron this fabric after you have finished your stitching and assembling, you may notice a distinctive 'barnyard-y' oder which will disappear as soon as the cloth cools. This oder is one way you can tell if an indigo colour comes from the natural plant dye or is a simulated by chemical dye! Like all indigo dyed fabrics the colour will alter and fade gently with washings. This is a quality of natural plant dyes which many of us enjoy. They alter gradually over time, changing in their beauty.
Size: 32cm (12 1/2") diameter.
- This kit comes with no english instructions for sashiko stitching but you can find some in my blogs at www.athreadedneedle.com and on u-tube.
- Do not iron before you are finished stitching. Ironing will remove the markings. Do not get wet before you have finished stitching as water will dissolve and blur the markings.
- Basic instructions for finished the mat after stitching are included.
- You will need sashiko thread and a sashiko needle.
