Over the past two months, we’ve received great feedback and lots of love for our newest book—The Geometry of Hand-Sewing. We launched the Stitch Journal in December to be used along with the book. It provides an organized format for documenting stitches and jotting down notes about each one. It’s great for practicing new stitches and perfecting techniques, but we’ve had many requests for something wearable to go along with The Geometry of Hand-Sewing.
The Striped Scarf DIY Kit is stenciled with the Variegated Stripe stencil shown throughout the book, and it provides an ideal surface for adding decorative embroidery stitches to our always popular Two-Yard Scarf. This kit is designed to be used in tandem with The Geometry of Hand-Sewing, and works perfectly with the Stitching Cards in the back of the book and the erasable pen included in the kit.
The scarf kit comes in Sand Medium-weight Cotton Jersey stenciled with the Variegated Stripe stencil at each end with a backing layer in White Medium-weight Cotton Jersey.
You can choose to get the kit with a spool of Dogwood thread and use your own embroidery floss, thread, and beads to decorate the stripes. (As we know from our Inventory Sale, many home sewers have a hefty stock of their own sewing notions.)
Or you can choose to get all the notions from our new Embroidery Sampler (contents listed below) and create a scarf like ours pictured above. The sampler provides the needles, pen, and notions to practice on your own project.
