New Olympus sashiko pre-printed wash-away pattern sampler for hitomezashi - 3 mm Grid pattern

$10.50



This listing is for one pre-printed, dot pattern sashiko cloth. The dot pattern washes away with soap and water. Please select the color you would prefer from the pull down menu.

These NEW Olympus sashiko fabrics feature a smaller 3mm dot pattern and new taupe hues!

These cloths have a pre-printed 3mm dot pattern on one side of the cloth. The grid pattern was especially created for hitomezashi (one stitch sashiko) but it can also be used to create many other traditional patterns such as: tatemimasu, kumiko lattice, kawari asanoha, dan tsunagi linked steps, yabane arrow feather, jujitsunagi linked crosses, hagaki and many more. After finishing your sashiko, the cloth can be used to create a quilt block, towel, pillow cover or placemat.

The pattern washes out of the cloth with water. 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.

The entire cloth measures about 28 inches long x 13 1/8 wide (71 cm long x 33.3 cm wide) The printed portion of the cloth measures 12 inch x 12 inch (30.5 cm x 30.5 cm) in size. The dots of the grid pattern are 3 mm apart. The cloth can be doubled and then stitched through both layers or the one layer can be stitched and the cloth can be folded over to cover the back of the project. Traditionally, the cloth is folded in half and the sashiko is stitched through the 2 layers of fabric.

The 100% cotton fabric is lightweight with a slightly open weave. Please refer to the last 6 photos for the most accurate representation of the colors available. Crayola brand crayons were placed in the photos for color comparison. You may select the color you would like using the pull-down menu. The "sage" colored cloth is very similar to the "almond milk" cloth however it has a very slight green undertone so it is more of a cool toned beige hue as compared to the warmer, "almond milk" hue.

This sampler comes with an instruction sheet HOWEVER this sheet is printed in Japanese.

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.

This product was made in Japan.
