PM-1 sashiko patch boro mending kit - complete kit
Olympus Thread Mfg. Co.'s latest innovation is a printed sashiko panel that you can use to make boro style repairs on your jeans! Just cut, stitch and patch. There are six different patterns printed across the Sakizome Momen fabric, which you can cut to whatever size you like. Marks fade out gradually when washed. Eliminates the problem of trying to mark detailed sashiko patterns on denim. Patterns are (from left to right in strip diagram) - yokogushi (horizontal rows), shippou (seven treasures), kakinohanazashi (persimmon flower stitch - a hitomezashi pattern stitched with interlocking straight lines), karakusa (scrolling vine), asanoha (hemp leaf) and tatewaku (rising steam).
This listing is for a complete kit -
Sashiko patch fabric with 6 patterns on OL100U Sakizome Momen fabric 20cm x 100cm
Takumi faux patchwork fabric 2000-B 20cm x 100cm
Sashiko thread 100m shade #101 antique white
Two sashiko needles (long and short)
Fabrics and threads are 100% cotton. I have all these items listed separately (apart from the thimble), but buying the set together would be a saving of £4.
Of course, you don't just have to use these fabrics for your jeans - a few other project ideas are shown in the other photos, combining the panels with extra materials, such as the Takumi 'cats' fabric. Why not make a bag, or another boro inspired project with beautiful sashiko details?
Made in Japan by Olympus Thread Mfg. Co.
Zigzag or overlock the edges before stitching sashiko, as this fabric will fray more than regular patchwork cottons.
