Description

Gorgeous sashiko panels – these wonderful pieces are a lovely introduction to the traditional craft of sashiko, a Japanese embroidery technique that dates back to the Edo period (1600-1800s). 


Sashiko does NOT require any embroidery knowledge, there are no fancy stitches to learn, or special techniques. The design is outlined with simple running stitches (push the needle up, move to the length of the marked line, push the needle down, repeat!), and you can add your own creative vision with your choice of color of thread, weight of thread, if you want to add applique or fancy stitches to fill the design in, etc. You certainly may add applique and fancy stitches, but it will look fabulous even if you just do the simple outline!!
You can turn the finished panel into a wall hanging, or add it into a quilt, or piece into a garment. Cut out blocks and use separate from the whole, or use the whole as one piece. The options are endless!!
Panel design is printed in blue on white, there are 2 designs in this set, printed side by side on a single piece of fabric. Instructions are included on how to make it as a ‘hana fukin’ – which is a multifunctional kitchen cloth prevalent in Japanese households, used to wrap and preserve produce, strain liquids, cover bowls, etc. The printed design will wash out when you are done. (So be careful not to prewash the fabric and don’t get it wet or steam it before you are ready to lose the design!!). Each design stitches up to 12″ x 12″.
One square shows 5 tossed temari-like balls with geometric patterns, the other shows a diamond grid with off-set squares of concentric squares and asanoha designs.
Directions are included. Panel info is printed on selvedge.
