Alabama Chanin make your own Throw DIY Kit

This DIY kit has been discontinued, but we have lots of new Alabama Chanin kits arriving in October.

This Alabama Chanin 100% organic cotton throw DIY kit features the ‘Angie’ floral pattern with relief (raised) and reverse (cut away) appliqué and beading. Finished size is approx. 90cm x 120cm (36”x48”). 

This DIY kit comes ready to sew and includes:

  • 100% organic jersey cut to size and ready to sew: 1 top layer already stencilled for you, fabric for appliqué and 1 contrasting bottom layer.
  • Thread: the famously strong Button Craft Thread and embroidery thread.
  • Beads: to embellish.
  • There are quite a few stitches to learn for this throw, so we include the hardcover instructional book Alabama Studio Style in this DIY kit.

Instructions: Construction and embellishment directions are in the Alabama Studio Style hardcover book. The book explains the various stitch techniques you will need and has many other patterns, stencils, embellishment ideas and even recipes from the Alabama Chanin team. The book is especially helpful for those new to hand stitching. 

Skill level: Intermediate. You will use back-stitch, whip-stitch and will create eyelets (circular starbursts) and beading. 

As with all Alabama Chanin work take your time and savour this project. It's all about ‘slow fashion’: it takes time to create heirloom quality garments. By hand-stitching with focus and purpose (and a little bit of love) you will create a work of beauty that you will cherish.

Sewing Terms:

  • Reverse appliqué: when a stencilled top fabric and a bottom fabric are stitched together following the outline of the stencil, then part of the top layer is cut away to reveal the colour underneath.
  • Relief appliqué: stitching a slightly larger fabric shape to smaller area, allowing it to wrinkle to create texture.
  • Eyelets: starburst shaped stitches.
