Imperfect Patch Kit
This imperfect patchwork and little stitchings kit is designed for mending, decorating, and creating. This kit accompanies me everywhere. The envelope is machine-stitched out of green plant-dyed organic cotton/hemp and is lined in vintage cotton with a stitched cotton twill wrap closure. Kit measures 8 x 6” with 25” closure.
Each kit contains mending essentials:
- a 16-page booklet filled with patching instructions and full-color stitching inspiration
- a handmade needle book with Merchant & Mills straight pins, safety pins, and 3 sizes of hand-sewing needles
- a handmade leather thimble
- (9) 4-inch squares of plant-dyed organic cotton hemp
- sharp sewing scissors with a hand made wool felt protective slip
- a wooden tag with 4 colors of cotton embroidery floss.
