Description

Kantha is a hand stitching technique that originated in India. It was used to join several layers of sari silk together to make bedding. A running stitch was used to create representational and abstract images. This hand sewing kit uses the same techniques used hundreds of years ago. The kit contains a detailed pattern of three cow parsley plants on a blue background. This is a plant commonly seen in British towns and villages. The pattern needs to be transferred onto the blue Makower Spraytime fabric and then two layers of cotton muslin is provided to place under the marked blue fabric. These layers will then be tacked together (thread not supplied). There are full stitch instructions which can be followed when starting to use a running stitch.
