The Trader Tote sewing pattern has been cleverly created by our very own Mary Make & Do! Originally designed by Mary as a carry-all for her work and sewing supplies, the Trader Tote sewing pattern includes very detailed instructions and is great for those beginner sewists who have already made an easy tote bag or two.
By Grey Fox Felting, the Barn Owl needle felting kit
comes with step-by-step instructions, full-color photos, needle-felting needles, 6 colors of wool roving, and a high-density needle-felting foam block.
As you move through this project, you will learn how to layer colors, how to add a basic pattern over a felted surface, and how to create the beautiful details and shape of a barn owl’s face. It's a hoot!
Print Pattern Sew by Jen Hewett - a cool book which teaches readers how to create bold block prints for a completely custom wardrobe - features print fabrics, customize patterns, and sew garments that truly express your own style. The book includes patterns and template designs to create your very own block prints, too!
Designed by LA-based sewing company Sewing Bird
, these embroidery kits feature designs that harken back to a time in our American heritage when “Penny Squares” were all the rage. The simple line drawings on cotton squares were easy to follow and fun to embroider in the early 1900s. Penny Squares were used in quilt making and decorating linens, as well as to teach embroidery to children. Each Sewing Bird kit contains everything need to create a distinctive embroidered wall hanging.
All of these gift ideas can be found online at owlanddrum.com. If you are a Tulsa local, they can also be found in our studio located in Retro Den
at 1216 S. Harvard.
