#SK402 indigo blue sashiko coaster kit
Arriving around 7th July
This kit makes five beautiful sashiko coasters, perfect for a gift or just to keep for yourself! The sashiko designs are hand printed in white on indigo blue Kofu Tsumugi 100% cotton fabric (an easy to stitch traditional Japanese cotton cloth, which is also used for my larger sashiko panels). The instructions are in Japanese but mainly pictorial, so they are easy to follow (you can also use the Google Translate smartphone app to 'read' the Japanese text). Just remember, measurements are all in centimetres, not inches. Kit contains printed sashiko fabric, sashiko threads and a sashiko needle (the third photo shows the materials pack for this colourway). Stitch through one layer only.
The patterns in this kit are a contemporary twist on traditional sashiko motifs. There is another kit for five coasters with a different pattern selection, this time on the indigo blue version of Kofu Tsumugi, which would coordindate nicely with this one if you wanted to make a set of ten coasters.
Finished size for the stitched area is 10cm (4in approx) square, and the coasters are approx. 4 3/4in finished size.
If you are curious about how these panels and my sashiko panels are printed, take a look at the second photo. It is amazing screen print set up.
Marks wash out.
Also available in deep red.
