Fabrics for Boro Patching

-a few medium sized pieces (maximum12 inch square) for backing fabric

- fabric scraps: a variety of fiber and weight and size, solids and patterns 

(include fabric you’ve bought but find problematic to use if you have some)
-fabrics should be suitable for hand sewing, since we’ll be needling through layers

-(also optional) bring a garment to begin mending.
