Olympus Japan sashiko pre-printed wash-away sampler kit - coaster kit on tsumugi cotton

$21.00



This listing is for one pre-printed, sashiko sampler kit in a deep red 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 Olympus brand sashiko thread in 6 coordinating colors to cloth. About 23 meters total.

*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' Tsumugi Kofu cotton. This gorgeous fabric is created in a similar manner to that of silk tsumugi fabrics. The warp threads of the fabrics are black while the weft threads are either red or blue. The different colored warp and weft threads provide the fabric with a wonderful depth of color that changes depending on the light source. The light to medium weight cotton has natural slubbing which gives the fabric a wonderful texture. The fabric has a subtle sheen and soft, woven texture. These tsumugi cottons are absolutely gorgeous!

This sampler cloth can be used to create five, 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 26.5 inches long x 6 inches wide ( 67.31 cm x 15.2 cm). The printed portion of each coaster measures about 4 inches x 4 inches (10cm x 10cm) in size so some of the stitching will be on the backside of the coaster after hemming. All the sashiko patterns can be seen in the last photo. The coasters can be finished by hemming the sides. All instructions are in Japanese however diagrams are also included. These can be seen in the 9th photo.

Please refer to the photos with the Crayola brand crayons for the most accurate representation of the color. Crayola 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:

*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.
