stitchalong kits and materials list
If you want to use your own materials you will need
fabric, either a linen or wool is best, of reasonably even weave. two pieces roughly 30cm/12inch square
threads, I use wool of roughly crewel weight (appletons is the nearest commercial brand to the stuff I dye myself) although any fibre can be used for this technique, each having its own differing results and challenges.
A needle, obviously.
Fabric for lining your purse and extra threads for tassels and braids.
Whether you use your own materials or get a kit you will need a frame of some description on which to tension the fabric – this technique must be worked under tension. When I teach classes we lace the fabric onto a sturdy wooden square but at home I use one of these
sturdy, easy to use, easy to tension, and cheap.
if you buy a purse kit it will contain-
wool fabric marked with the design
naturally dyed threads (each kit will be slightly different colours, so please state your preference, a key will be provided)
linen thread and wax for assembly.
silk fabric to line
I’m also offering a larger version for cushions, this will also be veg dyed wools, with the same wool cloth marked with a larger version of the design, but this kit will not include cushion pads or backing fabric (if you want the same cream wool to back your cushion I have it listed on picklepatch)
I’m working during the week at the moment, so kits will be made at weekends and posted the following Monday.
