This collection of knitting kits started life when a I was asked “ Can you make teddy bears?”
I immediately thought of the new technique I had just developed to make Christmas baubles and I reasoned “If I can make a cuddly felt bauble, the why not a cuddly bear?”
The jointed design came easily to me, the first teddy I drew in my sketch book was based on my Mums faithful “Old Bear” and from there the pattern grew, to be swiftly followed by a cat, and a rabbit.
The Frog and and Mini Monsters joined the collection later so that a child safe option which could be made without buttons
Knitting Craft Kit
I was Delighted When House of Crafts Ltd asked me to create a knitting kit for them, because I have enjoyed making craft items from their kits since I was a child.
We quickly agreed that a felted bag would make an interesing knitting kit. The bag we choose is a simple knit which a beginner knitter could easily make. It’s a variation of the bags in my first felted bags pattern collection.
The joy of Felt is that it hides any little mistakes or “wibbly” bits , so even a new knitter will be able to make a bag they can be proud of!
