Constellation Bandana Embroidery Kit & Pattern
Kit with PDF pattern
By Kristine Vejar for A Verb for Keeping Warm
Featured in Making issue No 1. / FLORA
The Constellation Bandana is a project inspired by the Khatri Indian tradition of ajrak cloths.
Ajrak cloth is made by block printing and naturally dyeing cloth with Indigo and Madder, and can be used in a variety of ways. In India you'll see them as turbans, scarves, and even as a hammock for a child. Make your own pretty wrap to adorn yourself or your home using this kit! The bandana would also make a lovely furoshiki for gift-giving.
- one naturally dyed 100% cotton bandana approx 21" square
- 6 skeins of naturally dyed 100% cotton embroidery floss
To complete the project, you will need:
- Making issue No. 1 / Flora (or PDF pattern included with purchase)
