This kit contains what you need to make a sashiko stitched Covid face mask. Choose navy fabric with white stitching, or off-white fabric with sky blue stitching when placing your order.
When you stitch the sashiko hemp leaf on a gift for someone you are wishing them both good health and a strong connection to community.

This kit contains
You will also need a fabric for the lining, soft sewing elastic for over ears, scissors, and regular sewing thread (if you are hands sewing the mask)
PS. There are directions for sewing the mask but no sashiko stitching directions. However there are lots of how to for sashiko stitching in my blogs
