Slow Stitching Kit I Budgie and Banksia
Scattered Four Winds Slow Stitching Kit
Everything you need to stitch your own textile artwork:
- A collage of fabric offcuts assembled by Scattered Four Winds, size approximately 15cm x 21cm (6" x 8")
- Cotton sashiko thread in natural and two coordinating colours
- A sashiko hand sewing needle
Collage may include pieces of screen printed linen or cotton with designs by Australian textile designers, artisan woven cotton, organic cotton, hand dyed indigo linen, digitally printed linen or cotton, cotton linen blend, and/or heavyweight linen.
Fabric pieces are machine stitched in place to keep assembly together while stitching, and can be used as a guide to create straight lines of hand stitching. These stitch lines can be removed on completion (or at any time you choose).
When you're happy that it's finished, frame it (find a frame at your local charity shop?), turn it into a patch on a cushion or tote bag, a coaster or a zipper pouch, or attach it to the front of a card and make it a greeting card! The A5 card that the kit comes in is perfect for this, just trim the edges to fit (start stitching about 1cm in from the edge and leave a border to trim at the end). You can glue or machine stitch it onto the card!
