Sashiko Hot Iron Transfers!

Natalie Menacho

Sashiko is a style of Japanese stitching that utilizes a simple running stitch to create gorgeous geometric patterns. 

This is a close-up of our Hoops and Loops pattern stitched up. Each circle measures 1.7 inches in diameter.

This is our Star Light, Star Bright pattern done in two colors to illustrate the versatility of the pattern. Stars, diamonds, triangles, hexagons! So many possibilities! Each star measures 2.5 inches from its furthest points.

To create a sashiko project traditionally, the crafter would first need to meticulously map out a uniform grid atop their fabric, mark corresponding points in the design with white pencil, and then carefully measure out each stitch as they sewed. It's an art form that takes practice, patience, and lots of thoughtful time.

We created our Sashiko Hot Iron Transfers because we absolutely adore geometric patterns but wanted to skip all the precision steps and get straight to the stitching! 

Here's a photo of our hoops and loops pattern in progress. This pattern was stamped on natural linen fabric, but we find light-colored cotton takes the ink much more easily.

Just like other hot iron transfers, the process of stamping the design onto fabric is quick and easy...and best of all: IT WASHES OUT! All you need are some pins, a hot iron set on the dry setting, and light colored, loosely woven cotton fabric to stamp on! Once you've stamped your design, you'll be able to clearly see where to stitch and quickly fall into your own sashiko rhythm. It's super relaxing, meditative, and fun to see your pattern quickly take shape!

This is what comes in a each hot iron transfer pack:

Artist Spotlight: Stephanie Metz

Stephanie Metz

The surreal quality of Stephanie Metz's work is mesmerizing. Her ability to capture the female form in her Figurative Studies series invites us to experience a side of felting that goes well beyond the cute little creatures we are oh so used to seeing in the felting world. Her work has a rare sense of humanity and depth that inspires us to push on and broaden our felting subjects. She created her series Overbred Creatures "to prompt a dialog on the responsibility people have to the biological world."

Well she certainly has our attention! Keep up the excellent work Stephanie! We look forward to seeing your sculptures in person one day!
