Top 10 Sewing Kits September 2017
We’ve covered our top cardmaking scrapbooking kits this summer, but now it’s time to make way for the sewing kits. We have a greater variety of sewing kits than ever before, making it sew easy to take up the art of sewing. You don’t even need to be a novice to complete these designs! If you’re stuck for inspiration or want a kit that contains all the materials you need from the get-go, sewing kits could be perfect for you. From bags, table runners and baby quilts, to cushions and paper piecing, here are our top 10 sewing kits this September.
Every home needs cushions; they bring warmth and comfort to a room. Sure, it’s easier to nip out to a home store to buy cushions, but that can be a pretty expensive task. Instead, this cushion kit contains all the pre-cut fabric and instructions you need to make four stylish geometric cushions! Just choose from lovely bold, pastel, and grey colour themes.
Some would say that a handbag is a woman’s best friend. It’s the ideal accessory that’s both fashionable and functional — a win-win. But there’s usually one catch: the price tag. Sewing together your own handbag can be cheaper, more personal, and you get that great sense of achievement afterwards. This kit contains the fabric, lining, wadding, and pattern you need.
BONUS: There’s also a free kit containing the materials needed to make pattern weights!
If you’re looking for a fun and entertaining sewing project, this is your gal. Sewing isn’t all about dressmaking or home furnishings — there’s so much you can do. This kit proves it, offering cotton fabrics, DMC yarn, threads, sewing needles, rubber bands, a wooden stick, and the instructions needed to create a 53cm elephant doll that’s dressed to perfection.
Sewing can feel a little complicated to someone who’s never picked up a needle and thread. If this is you, this felt kit is a great beginner project for you to give a whirl. Instead of running out to buy last-minute Christmas decorations, this year you’ll be decking the halls with handcrafted felt star ornaments! The kit contains absolutely everything you need.
This next sewing kit is another basic project for beginners. This time, you could create your own beautiful flower corsage to attach to a jacket, a bag, or even a hat. Wherever you desire! The kit includes step-by-step instructions, plain and patterned fabric squares, yarn, a brooch pin, a needle, a button, and felt discs. Literally all the materials required to make it!
Here’s another gorgeous cushion option. Janet Clare is renowned for her beautifully on-trend style and her comprehensive patterns. This kit enables you to create two coordinated cushions of differing sizes using her unique Moda fabric. They have a trendy plane theme that’ll fit into just about any room! There’s also backing fabric, pom-pom trim, and calico.
No table is complete without a table runner. They make a dining room feel a lot warmer and more homely, especially during the festive season. The problem? Store-bought runners aren’t always the best quality. Here’s a great solution: make your own! This kit includes all the fabric, wadding, and instructions needed. You can even choose between a blue or red theme.
There are many, many different techniques used in sewing. A technique that’s great for novice stitchers is paper piecing. It makes sewing intricate designs a breeze! Simply fold your fabric over the paper and hand sew it to retain the shape! Especially ideal for patchwork, this kit contains simple instructions and a huge variety of templates in lovely floral shapes.
One of the most well-known areas of sewing is quilting. This stitch craft is HUGELY popular and great fun. But if you haven’t quilted before, how should you know where to begin? Fortunately, this kit is ideal for quilting newbies. It contains all the pre-cut fabric you need to create a beautiful baby quilt and matching pillow, plus detailed instructions and wadding.
Tote bags are really in at the moment. They’re the perfect middle ground between a handbag and a shopping bag; completely versatile. Boasting a fun ’60s theme, this kit makes up a quirky tote bag that will make passersby green with envy!
