'Cranes with Cherry Blossoms' sashiko panel INDIGO
This gorgeous indigo blue sashiko panel is pre-printed with the exact stitch lengths, so it is suitable for all levels of sashiko stitch experience. The design is a view of a twin cranes in flight, with cherry blossoms across each end. It also works perfectly as a wall hanging, and the almost symmetrical design is great for a table runner. Back it or border it with another fabric of your choice.
Total panel size is 42in (110cm) wide x 33in (84cm) wide approx, printed across the full width of the fabric.
Suggested threads - combine various colours from the 20m medium sashiko thread range, or go for fewer colours in the 100m medium or 370m (4ply) fine sashiko thread ranges, using all these either singly or doubled for a bolder effect. 80m (3ply) fine sashiko thread could also be used doubled. This panel has many creative options for coordination with your interior decor. The exact amount of thread used will vary according to whether you stitch with a single or doubled thread.

I suggest edging the raw edges with a machine zigzag or narrow overlock stitch to prevent fraying before you start.
