Presents you can make together
Bring a little hygge into your home this winter with our cheery Nordic Gnomes. This kit is perfect for needle felt beginners, and contains everything you need to make two festive gnomes. It’s recommended for ages 10 plus, so why not introduce your children to needle felting by making them together?

Knitting fans can share their skills with youngsters with our Knit your own Teddies Kit. This kit is perfect for beginners, and allows you to create a mummy or daddy bear and a smaller baby bear. It’s recommended for ages 7 plus, and uses only garter stitch, with no shaping.
If you have more than one little one to entertain, our Three Felt Puppies Sewing Kit is a fantastic way of introducing children to sewing – they’ll be able to choose between making a Scottie dog, a Sealyham terrier, or a delightful dachshund.
Alternatively, cat lovers can make our gorgeous Three Felt Kitties!
