This sashiko fabric is created by Olympus Japan and features a grid pattern over a navy blue colored, 100% cotton fabric. The pattern washes out of the cloth with water.

This fabric is perfect for anyone that is learning sashiko or for those who would like to create a sashiko project without having to mark a pattern on the fabric. This fabric would be perfect to use for large and small sashiko projects such as quilts, clothing, patches, pillow covers, bags/ pouches, or artwork.

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.

The dots of the grid pattern are .2 inches (5 mm) apart.

The pattern is printed on a high quality, 100% cotton fabric. The fabric is of a medium weight.

Please refer to the photo with the crayons for the most accurate representation of the color. Crayola brand crayons were placed in the photo for a color comparison.

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.

Please note that if you order a large number of thread or small items the shipping weight may be overestimated. Be assured that I always refund shipping cost overages of $1.00 or more. You may also wish to contact me so that I can set up a special order for you, which will have the accurate combined shipping costs. I do not charge handling or packaging fees.

    The grid was great to help me make a new pattern to try making my own sachiko designs. Thank you!


    The fabric was exactly what I wanted. The seller was very kind to message me to check if I wanted 1/2 yard instead of two fat quarters. I was so glad she did that. My order arrived quickly. I’m adding the seller to my favorites list.


    Love that I can buy a fat quarter to try this fabric and the techniques it is recommended for


    Great item, just as described, excellent customer service and very fast shipping. Overall perfect shopping experience, thank you!
