While visiting the Kawaii Nunohaku craft fair last month I bought two small pieces of fabric from a Kamakura-based shop owner. The fabric was a beautiful pairing and I knew right away that I wanted to use them in a scarf.
I know nothing about these fabrics except that the colorful one is incredibly soft and light, is screen or maybe woodblock printed, and the other is linen. It might be hand-printed, too. I decided to make a circle scarf like the one I saw on Miss Matatabi’s site. I cut each piece into two 12″ by 30″ rectangles and sewed the short ends together. Following the directions here, I sewed the two fabrics together along their long edges then turned the scarf right-side-out, hiding the seams and pressing it crisp. I joined the remaining short ends and finished it with hand-stitching.
What a lovely scarf! It looks great on you. The fabric is wonderful.
Great blog and product, I love the kit I bought from you.
Can you please let me know the address of the Kamakura fabric shop where the fabric is from? Seems to be called Kiginikki? I want to visit Kamakura when I am in Japan in June, and thought I might check out that shop and also the Swany store that Novita wrote about on her blog.
Thanks for your help!
Hi Michelle, glad you liked your kit! I don’t know much about the shop, but I’ll do a little digging and see if I can find more information for you. (^O^)／
