Now printed on Kofu Tsumugi, the sashiko patch panel coordinates with my sashiko panels in light grey, and Kofu Tsumugi #2501.
Olympus Thread Mfg. Co.'s latest innovation is a printed sashiko panel that you can use to make boro style repairs on your jeans - among other things! Just cut, stitch and patch. There are six different patterns printed across the Kofu Tsumugi 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 sashiko patch fabric with 6 patterns on blue black #2009 Kofu Tsumugi fabric 20cm x 100cm.
Of course, you don't just have to use the fabric 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? Uncut and with a border added, it would be great for a table runner or wall hanging. A really versatile panel.

Zigzag or overlock the edges before stitching sashiko, as this fabric will fray more than regular patchwork cottons.
