I’m working on kits for a number of the projects in the book. What I’m doing is preparing packages of the same (or very similar) fabrics to those which I used, along with any other bits and pieces you need to make the item. Some of these are vintage or recycled fabrics, so rather hard to match otherwise. The kits wont contain instructions, as they are all in the book. Some of these will be very limited edition, while some (mainly the small ones) should be available in reasonable quantity.
They will make fantastic gifts along with a copy of the book, or you could buy them yourself to make projects pretty much the same as the ones in the book. Prices will vary and I’ll have that sorted out and online by 1st December. I will also offer a discount on the book to anyone buying a kit. If you are itching to make one for a Christmas present and would like it pronto then email me (email@example.com) and I’ll see what I can do.
The kits will be:
Vintage / new fabrics, binding, recycled wool felt pages and organic quilt wadding.
Various striped fabrics (not exactly the same) and the same vintage silk ribbon, plus stuffing.
I’ll list a selection of striped wools to make mice with,
and the kit will include the threads needed to embroider his face,
including hard to get hessian-type yarn.
There isn’t enough of this pink and green left to make another one though.
Silk and contrast red fabric. The buttons will be different as I don’t have any more of these.
The one from the cover. I’ve also got the fabric in a green colourway.
The vintage mother of pearl button will vary.
Organic hemp-silk fabric, backing and merino roving included.
Cushion pad can be included on request.
Vintage pink velvet and a selection of coloured wool felt scraps to make the design, plus some co-ordinating backing fabric.
Enough fabric scraps and the threads and hoop required.
I will also do these in different colours.
Enough fabric for 4 placemats, plus quilting thread and organic quilt wadding.
Recycled blue gingham, vintage orange trimming, orange zip and ribbon to finish.
Enough of the 1950s vintage fabric to make this jacket along with green organic cotton for the lining. I’ve probably only got enough for ONE of these kits.
Red organic cotton, zip, vintage button and interfacing for the waistband.
This is a very simple one – T-shirt not included!
I’ll prepare some small pieces of wool felt in various colours
so you can decorate a T without having to find and felt a whole sweater.
