Alabama Chanin make your own Shawl DIY Kit

Alabama Chanin are famous for their hand-embellished organic cotton jersey clothes.

The Magdalena Shawl DIY Kit comes ready-to-sew, already stencilled with the beautiful ‘Magdalena’ flower pattern. You will reverse applique the flower pattern - that means you will hand-sew a running stitch around the outside of the flower print and then cut away the top layer to reveal the fabric underneath.

There are two options for size:

  • Large is a full shawl size of approx 40cm x 100cm
  • Small is a scarf size, approx 20cm x 100cm
The kit includes:
  • 100% organic jersey top and bottom layers cut to size: the top layer is already stencilled with the Magdalena flower pattern and ready to sew
  • Instructions and Thread – the famously strong Button Craft Thread

    Skill level: Suitable for beginners. The Alabama Stitch Book available here explains the techniques used to create this shawl as well as many more stitches and patterns. 

    Have a look at our video below showing the beautiful Apple (red) and Sand colour combination. 

    Take your time and savour this project. Alabama Chanin is 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 to be cherished.
