This is a pre-printed 14" square of dark blue 100% cotton fabric, marked with permanent white stitching lines for a sashiko style embroidery block. The printed Celtic knot measures 8 1/2" x 9 3/4". The marking on the fabric will not wash out and even applying heat to it directly will not remove the marks.
It is recommended that Sashiko thread or pearl cotton thread be used for the stitching. No instructions are given since the marked lines provide the exact spacing for the running stitches.
After the stitching is completed, use this 14" square block by Dorie's Sashiko for quilts, tote bags, pillows, garments, etc. Trim down the block size, if desired.
