This sashiko sampler contains one greige (beige with gray hue) colored cloth that is hand-printed with a Christmas holiday pattern that features a decorated tree and the words "Season's Greetings". 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.
This sampler can also be used to create a quilt block, placemat or 12 inch (30 cm) pillow.
The entire cloth measures about 25 5/8 long x 14 wide (65 cm long x 35.6 cm wide) and can be seen in the 3rd photo. The printed portion of the cloth measures about 11.75 inch x 11.75 inch (29.9 cm x 29.9 cm) in size. This portion can be seen in the 4th photo.
The 85% cotton and 15% linen fabric is lightweight with a slightly open weave. Please refer to the last photo for the most accurate representation of the color. Crayola brand crayons were placed in the photo for a color comparison. This is a called a "greige" color which is a beige color with gray streaks. There are also gray "slubs" which gives the fabric a subtle bumpy texture.
An instruction sheet is included. This can be seen in the 9th photo. The instructions are printed in English only.
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.
