Alabama Chanin make your own Wrap DIY Kit

This Alabama Chanin 100% organic cotton jersey wrap DIY Kit features the Check pattern in reverse appliqué with beaded eyelets. Finished size is approx. 53cm x 121cm (21”x48”). 

This DIY kit comes ready to sew and includes:

  • 100% organic jersey top and bottom layers cut to size: the top layer is already stencilled and ready for you to sew.
  • Thread – the famously strong Button Craft Thread.
  • Bugle Beads: to make the eyelets (starburst circles).
  • You have the option of including the hardcover instructional book Alabama Studio Sewing + Design or purchasing just the materials kit.

Instructions: Construction and embellishment directions are in the Alabama Studio Sewing + Design hardcover book. The book explains the 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. You can choose to purchase the book with the kit (we include a discount when they are purchased together) or the materials DIY kit by itself.

Skill level: You will use a ‘running stitch’ and ‘beaded eyelet stitch’: these are simple stitches and you will follow the outlines of the stencil already printed on the fabric. 

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 that you will cherish.

Useful information:

  • 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.
  • Beaded Eyelet: glass beads are stitched in a starburst shape
