When I saw this 100% cotton fabric my first thought was to combine it with sashiko stitching and boro! It has the hand dyed slightly rougher feel of vintage woven cottons but it is colourfast so it won't bleed colour onto your stitching.Minimal shrinkage, machine wash and dry.
Suitable for bags cushions, runners, table mats and clothing, and I would use it for lap quilts, especially combined with sashiko and boro stitching! I've included a photo with my blue jeaned leg (!) because I know you are going to want to try it for mending jeans! Also there is a photo of it with one of the Olympus 12" preprinted fabrics.
