In ancient times, woven tapestry bands were sewn to tunics to provide color and decoration. When the tunic wore out, the bands were carefully removed and stitched to a new garment so they could continue to provide color and intricacy to otherwise plain garments. Inspired by this ancient custom, this border is designed to be used on apron pockets, garments, or the project of your choice.

Stitch count: each border is 23 x 69 sts/869 sts


My high quality kits come with everything you need to make the apron in the photos--26ct Mikini in ivory, Essex cotton/linen in Dusty Blue for sewing the apron, DMC floss, full color SOC (symbol-on-chart) pattern, along with a John James size 24 tapestry needle. The raw edges of the fabric are serged for your convenience, so you can start stitching as soon as you open the kit!
