S253E Sakizome Momen indigo blue checked cotton by the half metre
This is a checked cotton fabric from Olympus Thread Mfg. Co., excellent for sashiko, patchwork, bag making and other projects. Part of the Sakizome Momen range (colours are inspired by 'forests, herbs, flowers and earth' colours), the large squares are approx. 2 1/8in (5.5cm) and just invite a small sashiko motif. The striped sections and tiny checked areas would be great for hitomezashi sashiko stitching too. Why not add it to a boro inspired piece?
The weave is loose enough to easily stitch sashiko with fine, medium or thick sashiko threads. Ideal for wearables, boro style patchwork, or any project where a large check would look good.
Also available in grey.
Made in Japan by Olympus Thread Mfg. Co.
NB - sold in half metre (50cm) lengths, so please order '2' for one metre, '3' for 1 1/2m etc. Fabric will be sent as one continous length. Maximum length on bolt is 5 metres.
Zigzag or overlock the edges before stitching sashiko, as this fabric will fray more than regular patchwork cottons.
