Craft kit review – Dinosaur cushion sewing kit

26 Jun

This is very easy and fun to make. If I wasn’t following the instructions to the letter, I would have put the felt pieces for the arms and spine I between the two halves before sewing to make it neater.

Buy a stegosaurus from the same range here

NB Some of the craft kits are purchased from Baker Ross, an educational supplier who provide things for clubs and schools. I often split packs and repackage them for resale. If I do this, I always try making the kit (or a similar one) and will review it here before sale.

Craft kit review – sealife cushion

29 May

octo cushion

An easy sewing project, but the little pieces to stick on are tiny!!! This wouldn’t be an issue with the fish project, obviously, but the octopus was difficult to finish for small hands.

Craft kit review – owl beanbag

28 May

finished owl

As easy to make as it says it is, although I needed to add glue. I got annoyed that the bag which holds the beans isn’t opened and therefore the owl crinkles, but that might be me.

Craft kit review – book folder

27 May

book folder

The cord for sewing with frays, velcro looks messy. Very easy to stick on the foam pieces though obviously. A good starter sewing kit.

Craft kit review – make your own circus

26 May

paper circus

The cream of the crop – nothing extra needed, as the pieces are punched out and it comes with double sided tape. The only issue is that the double sided tape doesn’t hold the bunting on very well

Craft kit review – teapot trinket box

25 May

teapot box

This looks atrocious – I’m sure it I was little, I’d probably be delighted with this, as I’m nearly 40, I’m embarrassed. Still it’s very easy to make…..

Craft kit review – monkey beanbag

24 May

monkey beanbag

Pretty easy to sew, bit annoying having to glue on arms afterwards – if I wasn’t following the instructions, I would have glued them inside before sewing to make it neater
