Craft kits you should try

I am both a knitter and crocheter, but recently, I have been delving into the world of all things fibre and textile-related. I have really enjoyed learning some new skills and trying my hand at different crafting techniques. I have been on a journey of spinning, embroidery, and sewing! If you are looking to expand your creativity, here are some things we have that would be a great starting point.

Paraffle Customise Kit

These are so much fun! The kit comes with everything you need to get started apart from whatever you'd like to embroider these patches onto. The set comes with 10 themed embroidery designs. I chose the ocean design because I loved the lobster. You get an array of colourful thread, a sewing needle, and some dissolvable transfer paper printed with the designs. It comes with a little booklet of instructions on how to use the kit and advice on what stitches to use. I love that you have the freedom to customise the designs however you like. This is a perfect beginner-friendly introduction to embroidery and a perfect gift! I couldn't decide what I wanted to embroider these onto, so I decided to make little patches that I could sew onto things later or include in a patchwork project.

Orchidea Cross Stitch Kit

Pick your favourite flower and you'll have everything you need to get started. This set comes with aida fabric, which is printed with the floral design, thread, needle and instructions. Cross stitching is beginner-friendly and a really therapeutic and satisfying process.

Clover Pom-Pom Maker

When I was younger, I used to make pom poms using cutout cardboard circles, and trust me, these make it SO much easier. They are super simple to use; the arches open up so you can wrap the yarn around quickly, then close them back up, snip the loops and tie a thread around the middle. Remove your pompom and give it a haircut! I used mine to make a cute pompom garland to decorate Crafty HQ! I think it would be a great home decor option, and you could even gift it to some loved ones. It would also be a brilliant way to use up your smaller scraps of yarn!

Diamond Dotz

These are SO therapeutic!! Very similar to a paint-by-numbers, you get a printed fabric design that has a guide on it. You then use a special tool to place the diamonds on their corresponding colour squares. This is a really relaxing kit that is perfect to do while sitting in front of the TV. The hours go by so quickly.

I hope you have enjoyed my craft kit round-up! I would love to hear if you've tried any of these out before.

Happy crafting,

Rose :)
