A fabulous British wool knitting kit containing everything you need to make a beautiful felt bag and daisy corsage.
Our stylish felt bags are now available in kit form for you to make at home. You simply knit the bag and then let your washing machine do the felting, making this a very enjoyable introduction to the fascinating process of felted knitting.
The daisy corsage is knitted in DK merino wool and comes with a handy brooch pin.
It is packaged in a lovely hand printed box and would make a fabulous present for anyone who knits, or you could knit it yourself and give the bag to someone special as the perfect handmade gift.
This knitting kit is available in two different colour options. The pretty 'Carnival' bag is made in bright candy pink, orange and red wool and the classic 'Campsite' bag is knitted in sky blue and forest green. Both versions also include double knitting weight merino wool in white and sunshine yellow to make the knitted daisy brooch.
The daisy, with its brooch pin back, can be used to decorate your bag, or worn as a corsage for a cheerful co-ordinating accessory.
The bags are a very simple shape to knit, worked in the round on large circular needles. The daisy requires some sewing but this is a very straight forward project for anyone with some basic knitting and sewing skills. The transformation from knitting to felt is a fascninating process and the finished result is both beautiful and functional.
This charming felted bag is also ideal for customising at home with your own embellishments such as embroidery, brooches or crochet flowers, it’s your project, you choose!
These kits contain everything you need to complete the projects. This includes 100% British Aran, and DK merino wool, a 9mm circular knitting needle and a pair of 3.5mm knitting needles. Both sets of knitting needles are made from bamboo and are a delight to knit with. The kits also contain polyester filling for the daisy centre, a brooch pin, a sewing needle, a length of synthetic thread and full making instructions.
The 'Carnival' bag contains 2 balls of candy pink wool, 1 ball of red wool, and 3 balls of orange wool, a small skein of yellow DK merino and a small ball of white DK merino.
The 'Campsite' bag kit contains 2 balls of sky blue wool, 3 balls of forest green wool, a small skein of yellow DK merino and a small ball of white DK merino.
