This is a design that imitates the background of Japanese Sashiko embroideries, which actually aren't 'embroideries' as in 'just decorative', but a way of mending and recycling torn clothes.
This background imitates yarn-dyed indigo fabric, with the typical, slightly irregular, greenish-blue weave.
As for the sashiko embroideries, those are missing on this particular design. It is, however, part of my entire collection of Sashiko designs
, of which all except this particular design do have the embroideries in lots of various traditional Japanese patterns.
In case you would like to order swatches of those designs, the Sashiko design sampler
is a very good alternative to 'regular' swatches - it has all my Sashiko designs on one yard of fabric.
If you would like to order this or any of the other designs in my store at a different scale or in different colors, please don't hesitate to send me a message - that's all it takes to make that happen at no additional costs.
