A DIY tote bag kit that flourishes as you sew over the gorgeous flowers and bring the canvas bag to life with colourful embroidery!
Covered with lovely hand-drawn illustrations of classic florals, our tote bag already looks beautiful without any extra stitches! Great as a gardening bag, and equally useful for grocery shopping and everyday use.
This is a great sized bag with generous faux suede outer pockets - perfect for keeping tools in, or for carrying bottles back from the grocery shop.
The complete kit includes instructions, needle and 14 colour threads to get creative with! Includes a flower shaped spool to store your project thread & needle.
It is an embroidery kit and useful accessory in one - born from the idea that your needlework projects should not be stuck at home in a drawer! Add colour to each flower one by one and over time the bag flourishes into your own embroidered work of art.
Since the flower illustrations are fairly detailed, this is a longer project that we recommend completing bit by bit. Use each flower to practice your different stitches, and follow our tutorials to learn some new ones - for example a French knot for the stigma! It is suitable for beginners, as you simply need to follow the lines printed on the bag, but start slow and don't expect to finish your flower in one evening - it might take a few nights to complete the first outline and it will be a longer project even for advanced sewers!
As part of our new gardening range, these kits are designed to celebrate the simple stuff: Growing plants, cooking fresh meals, taking time out for a new hobby... Why not challenge yourself to grow each flower printed on the bag - so that it becomes covered with colour as you become more green-fingered!
