The art that is Sashiko is incredibly beautiful and traditionally done by hand.
This Japanese kimono at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is from the Meiji period (1868–1912). It is Indigo-dyed plain-weave cotton, quilted and embroidered with white cotton thread. Stunning!
I prefer to work by machine and decided to follow a pattern (Crane 1) from the book Sensational Sashiko by Sharon Pederson. I chose non- traditional colours for a fresh look and basically I like the piece but there is a small problem. Can you see it? It is glaring to me.
Can you see it now? LOL
I washed the piece which I don’t usually do with my art pieces and there it is: right smack on the beak – some residue from the PERMANENT red marker I used for the freezer paper applique process.
I just don’t know what to do with it. Any suggestions?
P.S. The bleach pen (starts with a T) did not work. 😦
