This was the final sashiko class that I ran at the Tasman Mini Symposium.
This was an easier one for people as we had a stencil to use to transfer the pattern
on with which is so much easier than using Carbon Paper.
Using indigo as a background does pose problems with getting the design transferred
on, as tracing through navy fabric is just plain impossible. So we need to use Burda Dressmakers Carbon Paper.
I had three different designs for people to choose from.
I used a hand dyed sashiko thread in a soft murky pink. This thread comes from a small
town in the mountains in Japan where there is a dedicated sashiko shop.
