If you're in the middle of a big knitting project or you've just finished something off, it's often quite nice to change things up a bit and have a dabble in a quick alternative craft project. We fell in love with Hawthorne Handmade's gorgeous embroidery
and mini needle felting kits
and thought it would be lovely to have a few in stock for days when you're not in a knitting mood. They make wonderful gifts too- either made up in to a brooch or finished hoop wall hanging, or simply give it unfinished to a crafty friend where we're certain it will be well received.
There are six designs for the embroidery kits
. Choose from: Folk Blossom, Seedhead, Unicorn, Cat, Wildwood and Puffin. All the kits come with colourful threads, a 7” embroidery hoop and easy to follow stitch guide and instructions. With the simple illustrations included even needlework novices will be able to create their own beautiful piece of work - and find great satisfaction doing it.
The gorgeous mini felting kits
come in four designs: Fox, Owl, Bee and Sheep:
A great quick craft project for beginners, our new mini needle felting kits
come with wool, felting needles and easy-to-follow instructions to make sweet little creatures that look great adorning coats, bags, scarves and more. And even better news, they use British wool! Click here
