A beautiful British wool knitting kit containing everything you need to make a gorgeous striped felt bag and daisy corsage.
Our rather charming knitted felt bags with daisies 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 rather jaunty 'Nautical' bag is knitted in denim blue, grey and white yarn, and the white turns a lovely soft grey colour during the felting process. This version also includes double knitting weight merino wool in scarlet, and brilliant sunshine yellow, to make the knitted daisy brooch.
The jolly 'Circus' bag is knitted in candy pink, orange and white wool, with a cheerful daisy worked in white and sunshine yellow yarn.
The knitted daisy, with its brooch pin back, can be used to decorate your bag or worn as a corsage for a striking coordinating 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 straightforward project for anyone with some basic knitting and sewing skills. The transformation from knitting to felt is a fascinating 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 'Nautical' bag kit contains 2 balls of denim blue wool, 1 ball of white wool, 1 ball of grey wool, a small skein of yellow DK merino and a small ball of scarlett DK merino.
The 'Circus' bag contains 1 ball of candy pink wool, 1 ball of white wool, 2 balls of orange wool, a small skein of yellow DK merino and a small ball of violet DK merino.
Our stunning, and sustainable, Aran wool is 100% British, and will felt beautifully at 50 degrees in your washing machine (or by hand if you're feeling energetic!) and our DK merino wool is made in Britain and is supersoft.
All our knitting kits are packaged in card boxes, made with recycled materials, and printed by hand in the UK.
The finished bag may be hand washed to keep it looking beautiful and the flower can be pinned out and steamed to keep it as fresh as a daisy.
