This listing is for one pre-printed sashiko cloth in a white color. The cloth can be used to create 4 coasters with traditional hitomezashi (one stitch sashiko) designs. The pattern washes out of the cloth with water.
These Lecien Cosmo brand sashiko samplers are part of Lecien Cosmo's new "hidamari" sashiko product line. These cloths were made in Japan and feature four traditional patterns. 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 number 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 design can be embroidered with one 20 meter skein of sashiko thread.
This sampler cloth can be used to create four, 4 inch x 4 inch (10 cm x 10 cm) coasters. The cloth can also be used to create quilt squares or boro - type patches.
The entire cloth measures about 20 inches long x 10.5 inches wide ( 50.8 cm x 26.7 cm). The printed portion of each coaster measures about 4 inches x 4 inches (10cm x 10cm) in size. The entire cloth can be seen in the 2nd photo.
The 100% cotton fabric is sturdy and is of a medium weight. It has a smoother texture and is more crisp than the Olympus brand sashiko pattern samplers. The fabric used to create these coaster samplers is a bit heavier and has a tighter weave when compared to the larger Lecien cosmo, pre-printed, wash away panels.
This sampler comes with an instruction sheet HOWEVER this sheet is printed in Japanese. There are diagrams on how to create the coasters.
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.
*Do not allow fabric to lie on other fabrics while it is wet as the color may bleed
