Each download provides information on fabric preparation and procedures to follow throughout. Included are outlines of the template shapes to photocopy which can be enlarged or reduced to the size you want and a ‘sketchbook’ page for you to try out your ideas.
The download also gives comprehensive instructions on how to make the templates required for the pattern you have chosen and how to best use them. These templates will make drawing up the pattern on fabric straightforward. Guidance as to which shibori stitch techniques to use is also given along with their Japanese terms.
The downloads do not include specific shibori stitch techniques – you may want the pattern for sashiko or to applique after all. You will find specific shibori instruction in the shibori garden series.
