Hemp Leaf Mask Kit
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 design is often stitched on baby gifts because of this symbolism, but it occurred to me that it would be a good symbol to be stitching on our masks during CoVid 19.
This kit contains
- a re-usable acrylic template marked for cutting masks in three sizes, with sewing directions,
- cotton fabric with the hemp leaf design pre-printed on it so you can thread your needle and start stitching (after stitching the print will wash away completely in warm water)
- pack of two sashiko needles
- leather sashiko thimble
- and 20 meters of sashiko thread
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
