Assorted Small Cotton Fabric Pieces


( / )

Package of 24 pieces of hand cut 4" X 4" cotton fabric pieces. The quality of the cotton and the texture will remind you of old fashioned cotton fabrics. Most feel slightly rough with a perfect weave for hand stitching. Pieces may vary slightly from ones shows but will be the same quality, and similar in colour and texture. 

The hand cutting gives you the irregular look appropriate for visible mending and Japanese  boro sashiko.  Don't hesitate to cut the pieces smaller yourself if you need smaller :-) 

These are colourfast, machine washable, but you should take them out of the dryer before they are completely dry because hot dry air is so hard on cotton fibres.

I've included a photo here of a piece I stitched onto momen fabric without pre-washing, then put through the washer and dryer.  I wanted that 'quilt-y look', and pre washing would have almost eliminated it. It is your choice :-) 

Some of these fabrics are also available cut from the bolt.

Please select all options.
