Hitomezashi Sashiko Sampler – Weaving Morning Glory
The sewing lines on this Sashiko sampler are clearly marked on the fabric and will wash out after you have completed the stitching. Since the design is only printed on one half of the sampler, the other half is usually used as backing, for a pillow or another project.
Following the stenciled lines on the fabric, your sashiko stitches (like the dark lines in the pic) will define the structure of the design. In a second step the thread (like the red lines) is woven through the sashiko stitches according to a pattern shown in the instructions. The fabric is then washed to reveal the design clear of the stenciled lines.
As well as turning this Sashiko sampler into a functional cloth, you can also sew it into a bag; cushion cover or even table cloths or place mats.
Please note the instruction is in Japanese .
