Making Kits

 Finally! The Making Kits are in the shop! Make your own beautiful high quality canvas Basket at home, they come with everything prepped and ready to use, available either with or without printed pocket fabric. 


There is the option to buy just the pattern via download on Payhip or to buy a printed pattern and a Making Kit. The Making Kit will has everything you need to make the Basket and is available to purchase in a range of colours and with or without the printed fabric for the pockets.

So, a few notes...

✨The canvas I use comes on giant rolls from my wholesaler so I know it’s not easy to buy high quality in small amounts to make just one Basket, the Making Kit will come with each piece of canvas cut to size and ready to use.

✨Same with the leather handles, the Kit has the leather already cut and with holes made along with the screws and the pattern will explain how and where to fit them.

✨There is a choice of canvas colour and linings, if your favourite isn’t listed simply let me know and I’ll try and add it. 

✨ Interfacing for the printed fabric will be included as I appreciate not everyone wants to buy a metre when only a small amount is used.

✨The pattern itself is broken down into really small steps with clear photos for each one meaning even an inexperienced sewer will be happy to tackle making one.

✨All you’ll need to make a Basket with the Making Kit will be a few hours, some thread, a sewing machine and one fat quarter of your printed fabric of choice if you decide not to by a complete Making Kit.

✨If you make one and decide to make another there will be the option of buying the Making Kit without the pattern for further makes.

✨The Kits will be packed and posted in lovely boxes so would make wonderful gifts.

Also available is the pattern by itself either as a printed version which comes with acetate covers and spiral binding to keep it lovely as you work from it or download via Payhip

I’m just so pleased with this new idea and have been overwhelmed by the response it has when it hit the shop! Thank you. I’ve now added a few different Making Kits complete with printed pocket fabric to the shop so you have everything except your sewing notions to make a start. I’ve listed them with a very slightly longer lead time but hopefully I’ll be able to get to the Studio a few extra times this week and they’ll ship far quicker.

This is just one of the prints I've chosen in the Making Kits, I think there's around ten available at the moment but I just love this Hygge print, I used it for Festive Kits so won’t be able to offer any more made up bags. This print has been created by a designer who gets a commission each time their fabric sells and is printed in a small firm in London so it feels good to be supporting their small businesses.

As always, thank you for your ongoing support, I truly hope this blog post finds you safe and well,
Best wishes, Tracy x
