Boro Starter Kit
This is an updated version of an earlier beginner boro kit. Along with how to make a simple boro cloth, there are more photographs, a brief history, and a few ideas for adding variety to your stitches.
The kit includes 1/4 meter of lightweight cotton fabric (20" X 22") for backing fabric, and 55+ grams of small pieces of new dyed yarn cotton fabric. These average 3" to 5" in size in a variety of colours, and are hand cut in squares and rectangles. There is enough to make a 20" X 22" boro fabric. There is also a leather sashiko thimble, a package of two sashiko needles, and 2 skeins of white sashiko thread, 20 meters each.
After you have made your boro fabric, you can simply hem and enjoy it, or you can use a sewing pattern to cut and sew something from your cloth.
