The Peace Sign
The peace sign or victory sign often associated with Asian cultures is a gesture typically the equivalent of saying “cheese“ when posing for a photo. The origin of the sign and how it became deeply embedded in pop-culture and the kawaii-aesthetic are hotly debated. For us at Crafted Matter, it means open-mindedness, inclusiveness, and goodwill. We hope you wear this symbol with pride and continue to always be kind.

- Cut your floss the length of your forearm. Thread your floss through the needle’s eye and knot the opposite end.
- Pull your threaded needle through the wrong side of your fabric, then re-insert your needle beside the same hole you started from. DO NOT pull your floss all the way through. Leave just enough to create a small loop.
- Insert your needle from the wrong side of your fabric (3/8”) 1cm away from your first couple of stitches. Pull the loop tight over your needle, then pull your needle completely through to create your first chain stitch.
- Re-insert your needle at the top of the chain stitch and draw the needle up (3/8”) 1cm away. Pull your needle through to create a consecutive chain stitch. Repeat this process until you are done.
- Simply stitch a small bar tack at the top of your last loop to finish the chain.
