Button Bag Sewing Kits

We have now been stocking Button Bag sewing and craft kits for over a year in our shop in Bristol and are now really pleased to have added them to our ever expanding online shop.
An obviously great way of selling the kits is by trying them out ourselves. Fortunately, I  have the perfect aged child who loves working his way through the cute range of animal and bird sewing kits and yes he is a BOY!
Easy to forget but boys love sewing too, perfect for developing hand eye co-ordination and making sure the future generation know how to sew a button on!
I know that I will be adding another in the range to his stocking this year!

The Making of Kitten Basket

As with all Button Bag kits all the materials are included; threads, stuffing, buttons and clear simple instructions, the only thing we needed was a small pair of scissors to cut threads. The pre-cut shapes mean that kids can get straight on with sewing which is a nice touch.

Django made the kittens over a number of weeks, enjoying the sense of completion that was achieved as each kitten was finished. By kitten number three he was sewing totally independently and was very proud of his creations which could then be added to the penguins that had been his first sewing project earlier this year.

A great finishing touch is that the box that the kit comes in transforms into a home for your creation, in this case a basket for the kittens, to join the penguins in their igloo home.

A proud and happy customer!
