Have you ever wanted to try sewing with vintage sheets but don’t want to invest the time to hunt for them? Are you new to sewing and need a helping hand through your next project? Or maybe you are an experienced sewist who is looking for a fun and easy way to create. How wonderful it is to have a project all ready to go! The fabric is cut out, the materials are gathered and the pattern is already picked out; all the details have been thought out for you. Let me walk you through all the awesomeness that is a sewing kit.
Each kits comes with a detailed list of materials included in the kit and supplies you need to finish the project. Think of sewing tools like a sewing machine, rotary cutter and mat, iron and ironing board. There are also optional materials that make the job a little bit easier like Wonderclips & spray starch (see my blog post with a spray starch recipe here). If you have been sewing for a little probably already have these notions on hand.
The patterns are the foundation of our sewing kits and they are written with a beginner in mind. I want you to feel confident during each step of the making process. The patterns are detailed with photos and written instructions to guide you through every stitch. One of my favorite things is to teach others to quilt and sew. I love to see a face light up and catch that ah’a moment of learning a new skill or mastery of something sorta tricky.
The kit line-up just got a little bit bigger last week when the ::Summertime Picnic Quilt:: was released. In this vintage sheet patchwork quilt you will find 56-8.5″ squares of vintage sheet fabric, a large piece of nylon for the backing and a hand needle and cotton perle for hand-tying the quilt for a simple finish. The fun and easy sewing of this kit includes a handle and ties for keeping the quilt together when not in use. The nylon (rip stop fabric) helps to keep your bum dry even when the ground is damp. Finishing at 55″ x 63″ it’s the perfect size for your next outing.
The kit that started it all; the ::Pretty Pincushion Kit:: is the perfect little project to get your feet wet in the sewing and quilting world. The pretty design uses string piecing on foundation fabric, a technique you will be able to play with after you master the 4 blocks made in the kit. Use the pattern to make them again and again for you and your sewing friends.
The best news is that all kits are on sale now through July 5th. Shop the ::Kit:: section before the sale ends and get sewing vintage.
