New Olympus Japan sashiko pre-printed wash-away sampler coaster kits - traditional sashiko patterns


This listing is for one pre-printed, sashiko sampler kit in an off - white, pink, light blue or navy color. Each cloth can be used to create 5 coasters, each with a different sashiko design. The pattern washes out of the cloth with water. Please use the pull-down box to select the color that you would like to purchase.

These are complete kits with nearly all that you need to complete the sampler. Each kit contains:
- pre-printed washaway sampler cloth in selected color
- 1 Olympus brand sashiko needle
- 1 bundle of thin Olympus brand sashiko thread in coordinating colors to cloth.

*You will need to have scissors, hand sewing thread and sewing needle to finish creating the coasters. These items are not included in the kit*

Each of these coaster sets has patterns that are printed with water soluble ink over Olympus' sarashi-momen. This is the same soft, sarashi momen fabric that is used that is used for the Olympus "hana-fukin" samplers. The 100% cotton fabric is lightweight with a slightly open weave. Please refer to the photos with the crayons 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.

Each kit contains an uncut cloth that measures about 26.5 inches long x 13.5 inches wide (67.31 cm x 34.3 cm). The cloth can be cut to create five, 4 inch x 4 inch (10 cm x 10 cm) coasters. The kit also contains enough fabric for the back of the coasters. The completed squares can also be used to create quilt squares, komebukuro (rice-pouches) or boro - type patches.

The coasters are finished by hemming the sides. The printed portion of each coaster measures about 3.25 inches x 3.25 inches (8.3cm x 8.3cm) in size so all your stitching will be visible after hemming the coaster. All the sashiko patterns can be seen in the first photo. Please note that each colorway has unique patterns.

All instructions are in Japanese however diagrams are also included. The instructions sheet can be seen in the 6th photo.

Photo 8: Pink cloth. This is a muted pink hue with brown undertones. It reminds me of a "silly-putty" color.

Do NOT iron the fabric prior to removing the pre-printed pattern or the pattern may not wash out completely.

To remove markings:

*Do not iron or get the cloth wet until the stitching is completed.
*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 kit is made in Japan.
