One of my favorite things to cross-stitch is a Taab Tab. It’s a big undertaking, but it truly is the one piece that is so identifiably Hmong. Unfortunately, I don’t see many girls wearing real, hand-made Hmong skirts anymore. The majority of girls who dress in Hmong clothes at New Year celebrations wear pre-printed skirts that are far from traditional and authentic Hmong clothes.
Therefore, here I am again, committing to making another Taab Tab! My dilemma is that I can’t just go and purchase enough fabric to make one Taab Tab. Once all is said and done I will actually end up with more Taab Tabs than I need. I will have at least four to five left over.
If you are interested in making a Taab Tab, I will be selling them at a first-come, first-served basis. The Taab Tab will come to you with a design already started, so you don’t have to figure out your own design, and all the thread you will need to complete it. Please send me a message if you are interested.
