This listing is for one white sampler cloth pre-printed with a wash-away sashiko pattern.
This wonderful sashiko sampler features a white colored cloth that is pre-printed with a flower pattern. The pattern washes out of the cloth with water. This hitomezashi (one stitch sashiko) sampler was created by Olympus Japan and is meant to be used with their new, thin sashiko threads. 80 meters of thread is needed to complete the sampler. 5 skeins (100 meters total) of standard sized sashiko thread can also be used to complete the cloth.
This is a perfect project for beginner sashiko artists. I find that these samplers are also wonderful for traveling with as they are small and do not require you to pack a large amount of supplies. The marks are also easily seen (for less than perfect lighting) and will not rub off when the cloth is folded away.
"Hana-Fukin" translates to "kitchen towel" however this sampler can also be used to create a quilt block, small coaster/placemat or 12 inch (30.5 cm) pillow.
The entire cloth measures about 27.5 long x 13.5 wide (69.9 cm long x 34.3 cm wide). The printed portion of the cloth measures 11.75 inch x 11.75 inch (29.8 cm x 29.8 cm) in size. The printed portion of the sampler can be seen in the 4th photo.
The sampler is printed on 100% cotton fabric that is lightweight and has a slightly open weave.
Each sampler comes with an instruction sheet HOWEVER this sheet is printed in Japanese. This sheet can be seen in the last photo.
Do NOT iron the fabric prior to removing the pre-printed pattern or the pattern may not wash out completely.
To remove markings:
Hand wash in lukewarm water with mild detergent. Rinse thoroughly.
Iron while still moist on low temperature. Place sashiko cloth face down onto folded bath towel, prior to ironing, to prevent the stitching from being flattened.
