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 silver on navy blue cotton, and 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!!).
This panel features a blossoming plum tree as seen through window frames, with birds and butterflies! Wonderful pattern for adding color and playing with variations!
Directions are included. Panel info is printed on selvedge. Finished panel is about 26.75″x44″ (68cm x 112cm).
No returns accepted. Colors may vary by monitor. If you need precise color or texture, please order a swatch (look in our shop for the Swatch item for terms and ordering info).
