Inspiration: Sashiko Fabric


Maybe it's because the weather is getting warmer, 
but I'm thinking about fabric a lot lately.

This is an inspiring find... Sashiko Washaway Fabric 

It's printed with an ink that washes off in the laundry. So, you 
can go wild with your creative ideas along any of the guide 
lines and then wash them all away, leaving only your 
embroidered or appliqued or painted design.

Pretty cool, huh? :)

I found it here.

Please don't start (inspire) me on anything else. Too many balls in the air as it is. Sashiko Washaway Fabric Person is a bit of a clever chops, huh?

That is actually quite mental! In fact its made my brain whir so much I'm going to have to pretend i don't know about it any more as I have no time or space for things of this magnitude.

That's clever!

But I still like my sashiko throws made from scraps of fabric bought at a Japanese street market. http://purplepoddedpeas.blogspot.com/2007/10/shhhh-were-hiding.html

these are great...i picked one up at a Stitch Show once and it does make a lovely evening pastime, whiling away the hours on a swing seat on a deck in the evening sun...actually i was probably wrapped up inside sheltering from the winter gales, but nice idea heh?!
