The first challenge after receiving many requests to create the "Fabric for Sashiko Stitching."
This is a swatch of Indigo Dye Fabric (which we like the most for the Sashiko Stitching) with the fine Asanoha-pattern printed by silk screen technique with washable (erasable) ink. It is "Ready to stitch" fabric, and after the Asano-ha stitching, you can just wash the pattern off. I personally still feel it is very important to learn how to transfer and draw pattern by oneself, it is also important to come up with the items to answer the market needs.
A Large Asano-ha pattern is fairly easy to draw. So this is the small one so you can practice to make small & fine stitches. If you are a graduate of Sashiko Stitching Workshop (Core & Basic), this is a great material to refresh your memory. If you are a new to Sashiko stitching, we strongly recommend using our Sashiko needle and our thread for this Sashiko stitching. For that, we prepare the set deal.
Material: Indigo Dye Cotton Fabric with Asano-ha pattern printed with washable ink.
Size: 15" x 11"
